The last release of LLVM amd llvm-gcc was 1.9. However, there have been 
many improvements since then. You could try 1.9 depending upon what you 
plan to do.

Make sure you match llvm and llvm-gcc versions. Always use cvs for both, 
or the same release number. Follow the directions exactly in llvm-gcc4's 
README.LLVM when building llvm.

Post your problems to the list and we can try to help.
