It's not a standard, but given that it's established I don't see any
reasonable argument for other compilers not to just do the same. You
can always fix them manually with CC="clang -include stdc-predef.h" or
similar though.

No; specfiles are highly tied to GCC's compiler driver architecture.
clang might have some other equivalent mechanism though.
