I'm not aware of any. The PyPy compiler pipes LLVM assembly to llc
rather than building the C++ IR in memory.

Note that C bindings have been introduced since 2005, so there may be
a different route available than was taken then. Look in include/llvm-
c. The intent of the C bindings is to enable high-level language
bindings. The current focus is on enabling front-end compilers. Ocaml
and Haskell bindings have been developed atop them, the former being
in the LLVM source tree.
