   Does anyone know if the issue with building the gfortran
front-end on Darwin will be addressed for llvm 2.4? The last
time a checked a few weeks back, llvm-gcc-4.2 svn was still
producing the linkage error...

I believe the analysis of this was that a bunch of ObjC building
code was placed in darwin.c and then called that in darwin-c.c.
I think the proposed fix was to link darwin-c.o into gfortran.
It would be nice if we didn't have a regression on building the
gfortran compiler on Darwin for llvm 2.4.
