That is because the lib/CodeGen project file is missing PBQP.cpp.

I could add that to my CMake build system TODO, but so far I'm a bit
skeptic about LLVM relevance on the non-Unix world. The Windows build
can be broken for a long period before anyone notices. The VS2003
support is broken since a long time ago and, apart from myself, no other
user cares. Seems that LLVM penetration on Windows, for instance, is
almost nil. Is it really worth the trouble to support things like
testing on systems that almost nobody (wants to) use?.
