It doesn’t, but the ability to drive LLVM IR and object code generation is pretty close to the top of the list of requested features.  Having the ability to produce the LLVM C API’s wrapper of a Module (rather than on disk bitcode) would be relatively easy, but no one wanting such a thing has yet sent patches.

Short version: Patches welcome.  I’d be very happy to review such patches.
