Parrot and llvm-gcc

Permanent link

Yesterday I built parrot with llvm-gcc 4.2 and llvm 2.2. It was nice to see all tests passing, which IMHO is a good sign for both parrot and llvm.

It gave no speed benefit over the ordinary gcc 4.2, but I'll try again with later versions of llvm and see how it evolves.

I also tried to compile parrot with clang, but couldn't figure out how not to pass linker options to llvm-ld that it doesn't understand, and I gave up rather quickly.
