I, for one, hugely appreciate your effort and the CMake build files. My
primary target is the Windows platform, and I'd *LOVE* to see LLVM
on windows. I think this is a "build it and they will come" argument,
LLVM is hugely useful for the kind of work I'm doing, and ATM I'm
to using LLVM on a *nix system while preparing (hoping?) for a win32
to work. The near nil penetration is a side effect of the lack of
availability IMO: How can I use it when it's not working in the first

I'd be willing to help test and, if I'm at a point where I actually know
what I'm doing ;), possibly contribute to make The Fully Working LLVM
Build a reality.

I have a working VS2K5 solution/proj file that builds everything
correctly I could pass on if anyone is interested.
