I'll have to disagree with Jon here. The modular architecture of LLVM is a major advantage over gcc. Not everyone wants to just use a command line program to compile a file. It's also nice to be able to compile from a program, to JIT little bits of code, to generate compiled code on the fly, etc etc, none of which is easy with gcc.
