I apologize if this is a duplicate question; I didn't see it previously 
on the list.  I'm using llvm 1.6 and my setup is as follows.  LLVM is 
installed at /usr/software/llvm and the cfrontend is installed at 

If I cd to /usr/software/llvm/lib/Transforms/Hello and compile the Hello 
transform I have no problems.  However, if I copy the Hello directory to 
my home directory and change the makefile so the LEVEL points to 
/usr/software/llvm I get the following error message:

Makefile:15: /Makefile.common: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/Makefile.common'.  Stop.

The same thing happens if I try to set LEVEL to something like 

Do I need my transform in the LLVM lib/Transforms directory to build it? 
  Are there other variables I need to set in the makefile?
