Unfortunately, I don't have time to resync with CVS this morning and  
do a fresh build. :-( Maybe tonight.

In the meantime, some suggestions:

   1) You might want to try --libnames instead of --libs.  This will  
give you bare library names suitable for in-tree linking.

   2) If you're missing components, try "llvm-config --components" to  
get a list. The old "JIT" magic corresponds to "--libnames engine  
bcreader scalaropts" in the new system.

   3) You'll need to conditionalize anything that uses llvm-config  
using "ifeq ($(HAVE_PERL),1)" unless you're prepared to add Perl as  
an official dependency (which might not go down well with the GCC  

Let me know if you have any trouble, and I'll try to resync soon.
