Unfortunately, no. See http://codespeak.net/~afayolle/summary.html for

The installed llvm version is 1.8b. llvm-gcc --version says
llvm-gcc (GCC) 3.4-llvm 20051104 (LLVM 1.7cvs)

I am afraid this is going to be difficult. The machine is inside
logilab's LAN, and only available through a VPN. However I'll be happy
to help solving the issue (trying to patch the code if pointed in some
initial direction, or applying patches and reporting back)
