Hello All,

What version of g++ is usable to compile the latest LLVM CVS snapshot on a
Linux/x86-64 (AMD64) Debian/ Sid or Etch plateform?

What compiler do LLVM dzevelopers use to compile LLVM on Linux/X86-64
systems? IKt seems that most versions of g++ fail to compile LLVM and that
some others compile it wrongly (producing buggy code)?

Why can't g++-4.1 be used?

FWIW, the latest gcc snapshot from yesterday gcc version 4.3.0 20070501
(experimental) fail to compile latest LLVM (with compile errors!).

Is LLVM bootstraped thru g++-llvm?
