I just removed the usage of llvmc so if that was really the problem
it could work now. The only llvm tools that genllvm now uses are
llvm-as (which works in your case) and llc (produces native code).

On the other hand I really doubt that the only reason for the
failure of llvmc is the fact that the frontend is missing: I
compiled llvm without the frontend yesterday and llvmc worked.
Has anyone else tried this and experienced the same behaviour?
