[snip error message]

Please note that you are not providing us enough information.  To report
an error of the form "the build is broken", please specify:

* Your platform (in this case, what Linux distro/version/etc.)
* Your version of g++
* Your version of autoconf/automake/binutils/et al.
* How did you run "configure"
* How did you run "make"

Here are some versions of GCC that fail to compile LLVM, for example:

Here are versions of other software packages LLVM is known to work with
(note that these are not the specific versions required):

Perhaps your flex is generating invalid C++ code (for the compiler you
are using)?  Your post didn't mention whether that code was valid, nor
did it include a snippet of the code in question.  For example,
bison-1.875 had problems in the past:

This page is the result of nightly tester on X86, same target as yours:
Take a look at to see what's different in your configure/build steps.

The build succeeded this morning (true, it ran from CVS, but you can
also find the day when the tree was tagged and see the build log from
then as well):  http://llvm.org/testresults/X86/

Also, the nightly tester runs with srcdir == objdir.
