Just put everything into `C_INCLUDE_DIRS' should make it work, see:


Using clang/clang++ from above link to compile a single translation unit should
work.  And there is `cquery' in `code.scm' within that repository, which relies
on clang to work, you can try it out.

It shouldn't take long to make LLVM and Clang in there ready to be merge in
core-update or staging (I don't know yet), it's just I don't feel comfortable
with the `clang-from-llvm' in guix, maybe someone could help carrying it out.
