I suppose you also have the gold plugin with the also-emit-llvm support.
It is in the mainline llvm, and I ported it back to 2.7.
The same error happened for both of them: the modified 2.7, and a
mainline I checked out three weeks ago.
This problem is reproducible while compiling flex-2.5.35.tar.gz and many
others (mysql and cherokee). I set the following:
export CC="llvm-gcc -use-gold-plugin -Wl,-plugin-opt=also-emit-llvm"
export CXX="llvm-g++ -use-gold-plugin -Wl,-plugin-opt=also-emit-llvm"
export CFLAGS="-O4 -g"
then configure, make, and then hit the error.
The error only happens if the CFLAGS has -g in it.
