Problem building Emacs b1fe27d with clang/LLVM 10.x

I am one of the maintainers of editors/emacs-devel FreeBSD port. Future
releases of FreeBSD (12-STABLE, or -CURRENT) will have LLVM 10.x as the
base compiler toolchain. We received reports[1][2] of Emacs build
failing with them:

Following is an excerpt from the build log:


gmake[2]: Entering directory

As a workaround for this problem I have locally implemented following
diff which seem to have fixed the issue:

--- lib-src/etags.c.orig        2020-05-18 16:17:29 UTC
+++ lib-src/etags.c

        case '#': case '~': case '&': case '%': case '/':
        case '|': case '^': case '!': case '.': case '?':

My C/C++-fu is very outdated. I'm wondering if any of the Emacs
developers have any better fixes for the problem. If you like I can file
a bug report for the same.

Also, as I'm not subscribed to the list, if you could please Cc me, and
address@hidden in your replies.
