Aha. I see.

I'd forgotten to remove that code when I moved the rest of the compiler support out of the top level configure for llvm. I hadn't realized anyone was using that functionality to build modules.

Out of curiosity what are you using this for? I.e. is it absolutely important to build bitcode modules within the llvm build system?
