Well, _theoretically_ it should be as simple as this (assumed you have
apt, wget, devscripts installed):
apt-get source llvm
tar cvzf llvm_2.1.orig.tar.gz llvm-2.1/
rm -rf llvm-2.1/
uupdate -u ../llvm_2.1.orig.tar.gz
Voila, new .deb in ..!
1. It doesn't work because you have to adjust some build scripts! :(
2. If you try to adjust those scripts you will look like Brad Pitt in 12
3. Having llvm, test and gcc in one package is ugly.
4. Splitting into separate packages is more work than typing 13 shell
... if somebody wants to try I would be glad to help/test.
PS.: Yes, I tried, and I failed.
PPS.: Yes, I tried to contact the Debian maintainer, but he's busy.
PPS.: Nice to see that Google Summer of Code was invented by Terry
