Visual Studio instructions say that LLVM requires bison, flex and sed
in the llvm/win32/tools directory and provide appropriate links to
download them. This isn't complete because bison also expects
llvm/win32/share directory which has to include bison/m4sugar/ along
with appropriate m4sugar files. Furthermore, Unxutils at sourceforge
project doesn't include m4sugar with its distribution which adds an
additional degree of frustration. None of this is a big deal but it
takes some time to get working, especially for someone who isn't used
to gnu tools (like myself).

At this point, I'm not sure. I'll check tonight when I get home and
will get back to you.
