Clang is sometimes favored over gcc for its non-GPL license; I believe the
FreeBSD project sees this as an important issue.

In general, the more C compilers a piece of C code compiles on, the fewer
bugs are left in it, because different C compilers tend to catch different
problems - even with cranked up warnings.
