I agree you should detect features if you can. If you can't, and you need to 
look at the compiler version, you need to first establish whether you're using 
Apple Clang or open source clang, since the two use different version numbering 
schemes. If __clang__ is defined and __apple_build_version__ is defined, you're 
using Apple Clang and you could inspect that constant directly or you could 
look at __clang_major__, __clang_minor__, and/or __clang_patchlevel__ 
interpreted as Apple Clang version numbers. If __clang__ is defined and 
__apple_build_version__ is not defined, you're using open source clang and can 
look at the __clang_*__ defines interpreted as open source clang version 

Some sample output from my system:

$ clang -dM -E - < /dev/null | egrep '__(clang|apple)'
#define __apple_build_version__ 4250028
#define __clang__ 1
#define __clang_major__ 4
#define __clang_minor__ 2
#define __clang_patchlevel__ 0
#define __clang_version__ "4.2 (clang-425.0.28)"

$ clang -v
