 All the packages we specify are still needed. I tried to figure out

 If it is because of the LLVM update in the previous commit
 (61af9560529c3424e), maybe it should be merged with that commit. Or maybe
 the llvm update could be separated from the previous commit in a new
 commit named `update LLVM`

 Without the newer GCC the LLVM build is breaking.
