I have tested the llvm-config patch and mostly committed it as a work-

Two parts I didn't commit:
     1. The .mt-attrs file that was part of your patch was not found in
        my build tree and I have no idea what it is. So, I skipped it.
        Perhaps this is something that is local to your build tree?
     2. The patch to utils/Makefile was undone because this forces
        everyone everywhere to have a Perl processor when building llvm.
        I didn't want to take the risk of developers screaming at me, so
        we'll build llvm-config manually for now until its perfect.
        Ideally, the configure script will locate Perl and we'll only
        build llvm-config if Perl is available.

There's a couple things remaining to be done:

     1. llvm-config -libs all produces: "llvm-config: unknown component
        name: jit". The same output is produced for "-libs jitplus" and
        "-lib native".  That needs to get fixed before we can call this
     2. Please take the "usage" documentation that you have and put it
        in POD form per the ascribed format in docs/CommandGuide. Just
        copy, say, llvm-as.pod and modify to the command line for llvm-

With this fixes and documentation, I think we have a completed llvm-
config script. Please submit patches against these latest cvs commits.

Very nice work!


P.S. mea culpa. I forgot to attribute your contribution to you in my
commit message. My apologies.
