No problem. :-) I'm just a bit of a perfectionist, and prefer to make  
my patches as shiny as possible before merging them with HEAD. But  
since llvm-config is currently skipped by the build, it shouldn't  
cause problems.

The .mt-attrs file is an artifact of my version control system, and I  
forgot to edit it out of the *.diff. You don't have the file and you  
don't need to patch it. :-)

On a related note, I'll be making my LLVM tree available through  
Monotone sometime soon. Monotone is a fully-distributed version  
control system with spiffy branching features. I'll use Monotone for  
prototyping various features that aren't ready for CVS.

Thanks! I should be able to track this down tonight.

Thank you. I'm eagerly looking forward to the day when we have more  
people building neat projects on top of LLVM.
