No work has been done on it for well over a year, maybe two years. The
person developing llvm-java stopped without finishing it and it can
barely run "hello world".

It might compile with LLVM 1.7. It definitely won't with later

There currently isn't a way.

You'd probably be better off spending time getting gcj in llvm-gcc to
work. Most of it is done already as llvm-gcc's support for C/C++/Obj-C
is already in place. gcj generates some tree codes that llvm-gcc
currently doesn't handle. To get it working, someone needs to implement
the delta between what is currently supported and what gcj needs.
