Hello, llvm-dev.
thank you for your interest in my question.
Currently, I compiled simple c source code (hello.c) in lunux and windows, and I tried to simple test .
 first case: hello.bc (compiled with "-emit-llvm" on windows) -> lli.exe(linux).
 second case: hello.bc (compiled with "-emit-llvm" on linux) -> lli.exe(windows).
second case return good result.
but First case return error.
I want to modify and compile mingw-llvm-gcc by myself for such reasons.
Also I read several sentence about "how to cross-compilation form linux", and Try it.
However, I could not succeed.
please, I would like to let me know "how to compile to the mingw-llvm-gcc" or further informations.
best regard.

In general, compilation of llvm-gcc for mingw is the same as compilation
of llvm-gcc for any other platform. However, there are bunch of small
glitches here and there due to some windows-specific stuff, etc.
I strongly don't recommend to build llvm-gcc by yourself - use
precompiled binary. Each mingw llvm-gcc version I'm building for the
release goes through some tests ensuring, that everything is ok with it.
However, I'm happy to answer any specific questions about mingw llvm-gcc
compilation. I tried several times "to compile" all available small bits
in some more or less full documentation, but it seems, it cannot cover
even small amount of problems which can be usually seen during such
PS: Another variant can be cross-compilation from linux box.
