I don't see any obvious problems here, though someone else might.
What exactly is the problem you are seeing? Is LLVMGetFirstTarget
You may want to take a look at this code:
It is a pretty good example of using the C API for accessing the target
registry. However, if you want to test this code directly, I would
recommend replacing the r600 target triple with your native
architecture, because the R600 backend is not built by default.
