I will build a toolchain based on my Ubuntu installation for Xcode 5:

* Whatever version of basic system libraries copied from Ubuntu 13.04 as of now
* LLVM libraries, 3.3 final with aggressive LTO on
* GNUstep libraries, based on SVN that is like several weeks old
* clang and binutils on OS X targeting 64-bit Linux with gold,
* Templates based on OS X templates
* SenTestingKit
* and maybe network-backed LLDB remote debugging
