[LLVMdev] How to compile apps to bc files with the new llvm-gcc4?

I'm trying to compile some apps with the new llvm-gcc4 on amd64 linux
to .bc files, rather than to the native code. The same process I used to
build those apps before with llvm-gcc3 doesn't work:

export CC=llvm-gcc CXX=llvm-g++ CFLAGS="-g -fno-inline" CXXFLAGS="-g
2) cd <whatever-app>; ./configure
3) make CFLAGS+=-emit-llvm CXXFLAGS+=-emit-llvm
[Reid told me not to pass -emit-llvm to configure scripts.]

The process fails for the same reason on several apps I tried:

$ llvm-gcc -shared  .libs/libdspam.o .libs/heap.o .libs/diction.o
.libs/base64.o .libs/buffer.o .libs/util.o .libs/nodetree.o
.libs/error.o .libs/decode.o .libs/pref.o .libs/config_shared.o
.libs/bnr.o .libs/hash.o .libs/list.o .libs/ldap_client.o
.libs/tokenizer.o .libs/hash_drv.o  -lm -ldl  -Wl,-soname
-Wl,libdspam.so.7 -o .libs/libdspam.so.7.0.0 -v

Using built-in specs.

Configured with: ../dst-directory/configure --disable-shared

.libs/config_shared.o .libs/bnr.o .libs/hash.o .libs/list.o
.libs/ldap_client.o .libs/tokenizer.o .libs/hash_drv.o -lm -ldl
-soname libdspam.so.7 -lgcc -lc -lgcc
/usr/bin/ld:.libs/libdspam.o: file format not recognized; treating as
linker script
/usr/bin/ld:.libs/libdspam.o:1: syntax error
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

If I execute the last command manually with llvm-ld, removing -shared
and -Wl, it goes through.

So, obviously I'm doing something wrong.

What do I need to change in the build process to compile the same apps
I could compile before with llvm-gcc3 to bc files?

Thx in advance,
