Not sure why this worked for you with LLVM 3.3, but I pushed the following change to fix this on my system:


The configure test for the llvm::Function::addFnAttr function was giving me the wrong result leading to this build failure.

Following the recent LLVM fixes to support 3.2 and to support dynamic libraries, I tried to compile against LLVM 3.3 and 3.4 and failed in both cases. The changeset that claims to add support for LLVM 3.3 does not in my case.

Debian package versions:

  • llvm-3.3-dev 1:3.3-4
  • llvm-3.4-dev 1:3.4~svn183914-1

The error is the same in both cases:
