I guess I don't really understand what your goal is.  Currently our 
support for transparently mixing native and llvm .o files (what you're 
trying to do) is pretty bad.

If you really want to do this (and I'm still not sure at all why), you 
would want to compile one part of the program (either the part compiled 
with llvm-g++ or the part compiled with g++) to a native .so file, then 
compile the other part to a native application that links to it.  You're 
not going to have much luck linking mixed bytecode/native .o files.
