openSUSE 10.3 over here (both x86-32 and -64), LLVM compiles out of the
box. (Needs Cyrille Berger's patch to enable putting LLVM into a shared
library, though; this might be in svn in the meantime, I haven't checked.)
There's an LLVM RPM for various openSUSE versions including the latest
(11.0) available from Packman (right now still at LLVM 2.2, but I guess
that the package maintainer, Toni Graffy, will soon update it to 2.3).
