Hi Reid,

I got llvm all up and running, thanks. I'm now trying to set up 
llvm-gcc4. Does llvm-gcc4 require the llvm object files, or can I 
install llvm, remove all the intermediary files, and then build 
llvm-gcc4? Also, if I'm just doing a one-off build, do I have to make an 
obj and install directory, or can I just build it straight out of the 
llvm-gcc4 source directory? Finally, do I have to install into the 
parallel install directory, or can I install into any directory I'd like?

Thanks again,
