I ran Bro (just loading conn.bro) with a large mixed traffic trace file and the resulting binary was slightly slower than the g++ built binary but it was a near imperceptible slow down.

This article seems to pretty accurately show speed differences between GCC compiled binaries and Clang (among other LLVM backed compilation techniques).
