I've got an 11.4 system with clang 10.0.0
I've got several 12.1-RELEASE-p6 systems with clang 8.0.1

I'd expect the newer releases to have newer (or at least the same) versions of 

Yet the full version info says:

FreeBSD clang version 8.0.1 (tags/RELEASE_801/final 366581) (based on LLVM 8.0.1)
Target: x86_64-unknown-freebsd12.1
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: /usr/bin

The Target line makes me think this is what was intended.

Can somebody confirm that this apparent reversal of the version numbers is expected?  If not, how do I fix it?  (I may have fatfingered something when driving freebsd-update.)

If this is expected, is there a good story?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
