[LLVMdev] Linking Bitcode Files on MacOS X

Dear All,

I'm trying to create whole bitcode files for applications on Mac OS X 
(i.e., compiling everything to LLVM bitcode and then linking it together 
into one large bitcode file).  I'm currently doing this by modifying 
Makefiles to compile programs with llvm-gcc/g++ and then linking with 

Is there a simpler way to do this?  I've heard that the native linker on 
Mac OS X now supports LLVM bitcode files.  Is this true, and if so, can 
it be used to make this process easier?

Thanks in advance.
