Hi Oscar,

I'm using llvm CVS, and manage to compile/link OK. Yes I include JIT.h.
The program segfaults when it gets to calling the function pointer.

>From the Makefile:

llvmjit: llvmjit.o
	g++ llvmjit.o /home//users//simonb//lib/LLVMAsmParser.o /home//users//simonb//lib/LLVMInterpreter.o `llvm-config --ldflags` `llvm-config --libs jit` -lpthread -ldl -o llvmjit

llvmjit.o: llvmjit.cpp
	g++   `llvm-config --cxxflags` -c llvmjit.cpp

Complete source (i added a call to verifyModule):

#include "llvm/Module.h"
#include "llvm/Constants.h"
#include "llvm/Type.h"
#include "llvm/Instructions.h"
#include "llvm/ModuleProvider.h"
#include "llvm/ExecutionEngine/ExecutionEngine.h"
#include "llvm/ExecutionEngine/JIT.h"
#include "llvm/ExecutionEngine/GenericValue.h"

#include "llvm/Assembly/Parser.h"
#include "llvm/Analysis/Verifier.h"

#include <iostream>
using namespace llvm;

int main() {
  Module *M = NULL;

  char *AsmString = "; ModuleID = 'test'\n\
implementation   ; Functions:\n\
int %add1(int %AnArg) {\n\
        %addresult = add int 1, %AnArg          ; <int> [#uses=1]\n\
        ret int %addresult\n\

  M = ParseAssemblyString(AsmString, NULL);

  std::cout << "verifyModule: " << verifyModule( *M ) << "\n";

  ExistingModuleProvider* MP = new ExistingModuleProvider(M);
  ExecutionEngine* EE = ExecutionEngine::create(MP, false);

  std::cout << "We just constructed this LLVM module:\n\n" << *M;

  Function *F = M->getNamedFunction("add1");


  int (*add1)(int);

  add1 = (int (*)(int))EE->getPointerToFunction(F);

  std::cout << "Got:" << add1(55) << "\n";

  return 0;
