[lldb-dev] Heads up: LLDB is broken with LLVM at ToT

I'm trying to build lldb now, but it's hung trying to build LLVM and
clang... but I already built these?  I don't really understand.

Is there any way to make lldb point to my LLVM checkout?  I just want to
see the compiler errors so I can fix them :(.

Alternatively, if some can email me a compile log with all the errors
(can you do a `make -k` or something?) I can send you a patch... this is
mechanical to update, but I need the compiler to tell me what's wrong.

I expect the fixes to all be along these lines:

 - Value *Ops[] => Metadata *Ops[]

 - cast<ConstantInt>(N->getOperand(0)) =>

 - Value *Op = ConstantInt::get(...) =>
   Metadata *Op = ConstantAsMetadata::get(ConstantInt::get(...))

Sorry for the breakage :(.
