Ah, in singlesource, try 'make Output/program.bugpoint-llc'.

There are a lot of things that could trigger it. System header files vary
widely across OS's (even across versions of one OS), and can sometimes

llc-beta is a "test platform" for new stuff, and is also used for
performance comparisons between different sets of LLC options. On X86
right now, llc-beta uses the local (intra-basic-block) register allocator,
which is used with llvm-gcc -O0.
