LLVM-3.4.2

Introduction to LLVM

The LLVM package contains a collection of modular and reusable compiler and toolchain technologies. The Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) Core libraries provide a modern source and target-independent optimizer, along with code generation support for many popular CPUs (as well as some less common ones!). These libraries are built around a well specified code representation known as the LLVM intermediate representation ("LLVM IR").

The optional Clang and Compiler RT packages provide a new C, C++, Objective C and Objective C++ front-ends and runtime libraries for the LLVM.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.

Installation of LLVM

If you have downloaded the optional packages, install them into the source tree by running the following commands:

tar -xf ../cfe-3.4.2.src.tar.gz -C tools &&
tar -xf ../compiler-rt-3.4.src.tar.gz -C projects &&

mv tools/cfe-3.4.2.src tools/clang &&
mv projects/compiler-rt-3.4 projects/compiler-rt

Install LLVM by running the following commands:

sed -e 's:/docs/llvm:/share/doc/llvm-3.4.2:' \
    -i Makefile.config.in &&

CC=gcc CXX=g++                         \
./configure --prefix=/usr              \
            --sysconfdir=/etc          \
            --enable-libffi            \
            --enable-optimized         \
            --enable-shared            \
            --disable-assertions       &&
make

If you have installed Sphinx and wish to generate manual pages, issue the following command:

make -C docs -f Makefile.sphinx man

To test the results, issue: make check.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&

for file in /usr/lib/lib{clang,LLVM,LTO}*.a
do
  test -f $file && chmod -v 644 $file
done

If you had Python-2.7.8 installed and you have built Clang, install the Clang Analyzer by running the following command as the root user:

install -v -dm755 /usr/lib/clang-analyzer &&
for prog in scan-build scan-view
do
  cp -rfv tools/clang/tools/$prog /usr/lib/clang-analyzer/
  ln -sfv ../lib/clang-analyzer/$prog/$prog /usr/bin/
done &&
ln -sfv /usr/bin/clang /usr/lib/clang-analyzer/scan-build/ &&
mv -v /usr/lib/clang-analyzer/scan-build/scan-build.1 /usr/share/man/man1/

If you have built manual pages, install them by running the following command as the root user:

install -v -m644 docs/_build/man/* /usr/share/man/man1/

Command Explanations

sed -e ...: This sed fixes location of the installed documentation.

--enable-libffi: This switch enables LLVM to use libffi. Remove if you did not install libffi.

--enable-optimized: This switch enables compiler optimizations in order to speed up the code and reduce its size.

--enable-shared: This switch enables building of the LLVM shared library which contains all of static libraries linked into single library.

--disable-assertions: Disable some compile checks, not necessary on a production system.
