You're asking on an LLVM mailing list, so the answer is clear: LLVM. :)
C-- is still a "researchy" implementation of a compiler backend that is
missing many pieces, isn't very stable, and produces extremely inefficient
code. LLVM provides a superset of what C-- does: the one exception is
that C-- does (currently) have better support for tail calls.
