Patches that make it possible to build with LLVM 3.9 and 4.0 are now available on the patch tracker: https://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?9741.

Note also that another ticket about building with LLVM 3.8 already existed: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?51574.  Sorry for the duplicate.

OK to put this in default? Current Fedora 29 has 3.9

Too late for this release, but put them on the patch tracker.

Thank you.

To answer partially the question in your comment #3: the only version of LLVM that is currently supported in 3.8.x.

I have a small set of patches that allows to compile for both 3.8.x and 3.9.x, would this be interesting for the upcoming release?  Where should I put them? (another bug report? a ticket on the patch tracker? elsewhere?)

Woops, I see that it was internal re-factoring in Octave, rather than changes to LLVM that caused the problem.  I pushed your changeset here: https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/b880c6426424.

Marking as fixed and closing report.

Will this be okay with previous versions of LLVM as well, or does this require adding tests in configure to determine the LLVM version and then #ifdef around this specific change?

Sorry about that, I probably forgot to attach it ;-)

Here it is.

Your patch apparently wasn't uploaded.  Could you try again?

Octave no longer builds with --enable-jit.  It worked with Octave 4.4.1.

The reason is a recent changeset (2eb71b83d3e2: partially refactor function lookup in symbol table) which removed the ::find method from the symbol_table class.

The attached patch fixes the problem by calling ::builtin_find instead.  Tested with LLVM 3.8.1 on stable.
