I'm sorry to reply on the list (but I failed even waiting 15 minutes to get
a mailed password from the LLVM bugzilla system).

With the latest CVS and with ./configure CXX=g++-snap where 
g++-snap is yesterday's GCC trunk :
g++-snap -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Configured with: ../configure --disable-multilib --program-suffix=-snap --enable-languages=c,c++
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.3.0 20070501 (experimental)

I am getting the following errors

llvm[1]: Building Debug Archive Library libLLVMSystem.a

Hope that this could help someone. I really don't know if it is a bug in GCC
(tuesday's SVN snapshot) or in LLVM (today's CVS snapshot)
