I'm not anywhere near getting "run" working, so I guess I'll have to
wait for that.

> On Mac OS X lldb defaults to assuming it is looking at an x86_64 file.  If you are running it on a 32-bit file you need to explicitly invoke it 'lldb -a i386 filename'.  I don't know if this will hold true on Linux as well.

I'll try messing with it once I get some real output.
