Thanks a lot, Bruce. Yes, I got 3.4.2 working, although it wasn't
easy. I had to cross-compile from a OS X 10.11 machine back to 10.6,
because the default gcc 4.2 in 10.6.8 wouldn't build llvm 3.4.2. Then
I ran the test suite on 10.6.8 and it passed successfully.

However, building llvm 3.8.0 on OS X 10.6.8 is quite a different
story, even if you have a working 3.4.2 installation. It seems
development is done always in cutting-edge OS versions. But I don't
surrender, I'm fighting to get it working.
