this is a smart idea, thanks!

so i moved the code to under llvm-3.1.src/lib/Transforms/, and use the
Makefile from http://www.llvm.org/docs/WritingAnLLVMPass.html#makefile
all the compilation went flawless without any problem.

then this requires me to put my code into the LLVM source tree, and i
dont like this.
i tried to move my code and my Makefile elsewhere, and compilation failed.
so the questions are:

(1) how can i fix the Makefile, so i can compile my pass from anywhere?

(2) is it (pass compilation) possible without the LLVM source code?
