I installed gutsy desktop, and llvm svn head (which compiles for me on  
MacIntel and Win32. The problem I encounter is with gcc. The llvm  
config executes gcc -V, which on my installation fails because -V  
requires an argument. This leads configure to think that the compiler  
cannot produce executables.

I'm not au fait with the gcc version configuration stuff in Ubuntu,  
which is where I suspect this is going wrong.

One should respect public opinion insofar as is necessary to avoid  
starvation and keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this  
is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny.
