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.
