Well, for one, I don't think LLVM believes in stable APIs or shared
libraries, and I think some of the build system issues for example are
a result of that. More generally, I have the impression that using
LLVM is much more complicated than it really needs to be for what
we're trying to use it for in r600g. Of course I'm not a particularly
active contributor to r600g these days, so this is really just more of
a comment from the sidelines, but my basic point is that I think
there's value in exploring other options besides LLVM.
