[cfe-users] Problem compiling simple main.c with llvm-5.0

Hi, I am new to llvm, so my first question is if this is the right
mailing list to address respective problems using that software.

I downloaded the llvm 5.0.0 binary bundle, and I can compile simple
main.c for x64_64 host.  However, when

.../bin/clang main.c --target=avr
error: unable to create target: 'No available targets are compatible 
with this triple.'
1 error generated.

As --help is not much help, I tried guessing around using targets
elf32-avr, avr-unknown-none, all giving the same, unspecific diagnostic
(so much for "extremely useful error and warning messages").

I checked the v5.0 sources, there are plenty of modules dealing with
AVR, so that target should be supported. No?

So I downloaded the llvm 5.0.0 source bundle and configured for AVR:

$ cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DLLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD="AVR" 


-- Constructing LLVMBuild project information
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:688 (message):
   The target `AVR' does not exist.

       It should be one of


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also ".../build/llvm-5-avr/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".
See also ".../build/llvm-5-avr/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log".

The 5.0.0 release notes have some mention of AVR


so I'd expect this target is supported?

Thanks for any help.
