Whenever LLVM vectorization supports vectorization it will be part of  
llvm optimizer, which means it will be independent of llvm-gcc.  
Meanwhile, it is a good idea to open bugzilla reports, @ llvm.org,   
from polyhedron test cases where gcc's vectorization helps

I sent you a patch in separate email that may help gfortran. Try it
