Hi Nicolas,

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

OK, done.

> 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 32bits.

How would I run VMKit without GC?

Compiling for 32 bits is not an attractive option. The problem is the GNU classpath library, which has some unpleasant dependencies, in particular GTK+. I get them through MacPorts, which compiles 64-bit only on Snow Leopard. I'd have to install all that by hand to get 32-bit versions. I guess I'd rather work with a 32-bit Linux running under VirtualBox. Long live virtualization!  ;-)
