Hi Konrad,

Yes, there has been an incompatibility change recently between LLVM and
VMKit. Please use revision 100087 of LLVM until I find a workaround.

Also, running on Snow Leopard is untested (VMKit does not have support for
GC on 64bits), but should work without a GC. You can also try to compile on
