yum search all compiler

will also search package descriptions and URLs (in addition to the default
of just package names and summaries).

That includes both gcc-c++ and clang.

I don't know if there are yum/dnf plugins to include tags from
https://apps.fedoraproject.org/tagger/ (as previously established, the Gnome
Software program *does*). But that would be an interesting thing to add.
