I'm not sure CC and CXX help configuring vmkit. I haven't checked for a
while, but it may be that llvm-gcc/llvm-g++ do not work anymore to compile
vmkit. What you should do is get the svn version of clang, compile it and
use it instead of llvm-gcc. I believe you don't need to provide CC and CXX
to vmkit's configure in that case. The configure scripts of vmkit and llvm
will find clang.
