Probably the prebuilt toolchain Tony is using (WinLibs) has an old 
standard library.
The problem is not specific to Clang perse.

But why do we want clang-MinGW to begin with ? MinGW is niche as it is. 
I don't see anyone wanting this combo.

clang-MSVC on the other hand is useful as it means a better compiler 
frontend (clang) using a better standard library on Windows (msvc).

Friedmann also mentions "We want clang.cl only (as discussed many times 
already)." (QTQAINFRA-2139)
