Done... http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=14140. I'll ping the MacPorts maintainers of their llvm-3.2 package to update
it to contain polly as well. This, with a rebuild of their dragonegg-3.2 package, should provide the Apple programmers with
pre-built binaries to debug this issue without tainting themselves with GPLv3 code.

Can you take a look at lvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=14135 as well? We need to avoid using LLVM_SHLIBEXT in the test
subdirectory because this is defined to '.dylib' on darwin while Polly correctly builds the loadable module with the
'.so' suffix causing almost all of the testsuite to fail with 'make test-polly'. Thanks in advance.
