[lldb-dev] Are the JITLoaderGDB and ProcessElfCore plugins supposed to work on OS X?

Most plug-ins should be built on all systems all the time. The _only_ plugins that shouldn't be built are ones that can only build on the native system and only make sense to use on the native system. That means "ProcessLinux" is for linux only, and "ProcessFreeBSD" is for FreeBSD only. Right now there are a bunch of Apple plug-ins that aren't being built for everyone, but they should be and Todd Fiala and I are working on making sure they are included soon.

So the answer is "make the build work" for all plug-ins. Right now we have 3 build systems: Xcode (darwin only), make and cmake. Usually when changes get made things break so we need to fix them.
