This one's a joy.  dragonegg is a gcc plugin that basically replaces the
middle and back ends; gcc's parser, llvm's optimizers, llvm's code
generators.  There's a dragonegg 3.5.0 to match llvm 3.5.0, but since
gcc's plugin API is just as unstable as llvm's, it only supports through
gcc 4.8.

But dragonegg is busted in F21 already, because (as above) it was built
against gcc 4.8 and F21 is gcc 4.9.  Can we block or retire dragonegg?
