I've succeeded in building CFE in Mingw at some 1.3-1.4 release.
After, I just don't have enough time to play with LLVM. I've sent my
instructions to Henrik Bach <henrik_bach_llvm at hotmail.com>, maybe it's
worth to ask him. I'll also try to seek for e-mails i've sent to him
(please note, that they should be outdated - i've written them a year
Anyway, the problem isn't in mingw itself, but in msys. Some patching
will be needed in order to build it successfully. One of the decent
solutions is just to use some small piece of cygwin just for shell stuff.

With best regards,
