I was referring to <http://www.llvm.org/docs/tutorial/ 
JITTutorial1.html>, but laboring under the belief that it would first  
be a good idea to first get through GettingStarted.html, which  
recommends putting your stuff under "projects" based on "sample", and  
led me to Projects.html.

I'm still stuck on that whole "projects" business -- the sample in my  
build directory doesn't match the description on Projects.html, but  
"make" works (apparently referencing source files under llvm-2.2/ 
projects); and the one under llvm-2.2 matches the description and  
contains source files, but "make" there doesn't work.

However, after looking at the tutorial again, I realized that it  
doesn't matter -- I don't need a complex file hierarchy or even a  
Makefile; Owen provides a one-liner to compile and link the tutorial  
code at the bottom of the page.  This works fine for me, regardless  
of where I put the source file.

So, while I still think the projects/sample issue is a confusing  
stumbling block, I'm willing to ignore it for now and presume that  
deeper understanding will come later.
