By default lli looks for a function named @main since that's the
traditional C and C++ entry point (amongst others these days). You can
override that and tell it to execute an arbitrary function with  the
"-entry-function" argument. Probably wise to make sure the prototype
matches main though (i.e. return and int and take either northing or
an argc, argv pair).
