This is due to an incorrect use of the tools. Bill, I'd be happy to  
help out, but, you'd need to say how you did the merge.  I suspect you  
may have just grabbed a patch and applied it three times in a row.

Roughly, what you need to do is to have a import branch that is  
unmodified upstream, and then you just merge the last version of that  
branch to the current version of that branch using svn merge onto your  
llvm branch.

diff -r upstream current

and then look for APPLE LOCAL markers that have been added, there  
should be none.  That's the best auditing method I can come up with in

Yes, you can count on them being there.
