            Bug ID: 18952
           Summary: Replace build system with Gyp
           Product: Build scripts
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: cmake
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

I would very much like to use Gyp for building LLVM, for several reasons:

1) Greatly simplify building a local copy of LLVM in a project using Gyp
2) Declarative build configuration (make life easier for developers)
3) Improve life for developers using MS toolchains
4) Probably a great deal of other things

I know that people hate build system migrations, and LLVM is big, so I probably
can't do it all on my own anyways. But it's something worth doing, in my
opinion, both for projects I'm working on, and for the community at large.

If people are not totally opposed to this, then perhaps this could become a
sort of meta-bug for porting different pieces of the build system over to Gyp.
If people really hate the idea of doing this, then I'm not going to work to
improve it.
