[lldb-dev] build fails on linux

With the patch submitted Oct.6,2011 to lldb-commits titled
"[Lldb-commits] patch to fix Linux build" (still awaiting review)
the Linux build works.  

In addition to setting the PYTHONPATH to find lldb.py, I also needed to add
$llvm/tools/lldb/examples/synthetic so lldb could find gnu_libstdcpp.  Without
this, you get "ImportError: No module named gnu_libstdcpp" when starting lldb.
(Please let us know if that's not the intended gnu_libstdcpp module).

When debugging a simple test case with lldb on Linux (uname -a : Linux
ack.localdomain #1 SMP Sat Jul 9 21:24:58 PDT 2011 i686 i686 i386
GNU/Linux) lldb crashes with a segv in pthread_mutex_lock.   I've not looked
into this yet.  Here's the stack under gdb:

So clearly the Linux port needs more work, and I'm not sure if I'm going to be
able to give it the attention it needs.
