Cool, thanks; I didn't realize that was missing.  I've managed to
integrate it in (but I'm not attaching a patch yet; see below).

The other thing that is missing is generating the SWIG bindings; see
http://lists.cs.uiuc.edu/pipermail/lldb-dev/2010-June/000045.html .
I've managed to get it mostly working, but I'm running into an issue
with circular dependencies: bindings -> source/API ->
source/Interpreter -> bindings.  I'm not sure how to go about dealing
with this... I'm tempted to just collapse lldb into a single .a file,
but I don't know how to tell the LLVM Makefile system to do that.  Any
