To be a bit more specific: you're trying to build LLVM 1.3 using the 
mainline CVS directions.  Building the CFE is always tricky, so it's 
important to exactly follow the correct instructions.  You should have a 
version of the document corresponding to LLVM 1.3 in your llvm/docs 
directory of the 1.3 distribution, or here: 
http://llvm.cs.uiuc.edu/releases/1.3/docs/.  Also note, LLVM 1.4 will be 
released in the next few days, so if waiting is an option, you might 
choose to do so.
