I was doing this as a functionality test, not as a replacement. My interest was 
making sure LLVM's configuration was proper and correct.

Mind the fact that llvm-gcc compiled apps don't usually run as fast as "plain" 
GCC, since LLVM still doesn't implement a number of optimisation techniques. 
That's bound to change in time, however; just don't get overly frustrated when 
you face these less-than-stellar results. IMO for the time being the strength 
of LLVM is in providing the tools for building compilers and runtimes for 
dynamic languages, and not so much as a replacement of GCC for the sake of 
replacing it.
