OK, I'll try out the latter (and wait for Leopard in the meantime :-)).

You're welcome, here's some more:
  * The various IntXTy's are not considered primitive anymore by e.g.  
  * It seems that a C-call like printf("---\n") is transformed to puts 
("---") in the LLVM IR instead of keeping it a printf. What are the  
circumstances in which this happens? Do other similar conversions  
occur? Can this be turned off (lower optimisation level?)? Manually  
replacing the puts-calls by a printf-call is not straightforward, as  
the argument should be appended a '\n' (implicit with puts).

Kind regards,
