           Summary: GettingStarted guide humiliates linux/amd64 platform
           Product: Documentation
           Version: 2.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: General docs
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

GettingStarted guide as shipped with 2.4 software and seen online today morning
says that llvm on Linux/amd64 is unable to generate native code

In my experience this statement is completely wrong: natively built llvm-gcc is
a working replacement of regular gcc

Is there a test proving that i am wrong and documentation is right? Builtin
test nearly succeeds (2781 expected passes, 3 unexpected failures, 1 unexpected
success, 5 unexpected failures). I failed to run external test-suite and failed
to cross-compile llvm-gcc for mips target, but don't experience any problem
with llvm-gcc as a native compiler

I don't believe i'm the only one who compiled llvm-gcc on linux/amd64. Maybe
GettingStarted.html needs updating?
