My main development machine is x86-64, and I use llvm on it, and develop
code that uses llvm .
The only issue is this that PIC codegen doesn't work, and you can't
bootstrap llvm-gcc: http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=1711#c16

However you can still get a usable llvm-gcc with --disable-shared,
--disable-multilib --disable-bootstrap.

The above refers to x86-64/Linux, if you have Mac OS X on it the
situation might be different.

Best regards,
