This is more a reminder then a full on thought out task but need to check the status of LLVM on windows. Mostly in the sense of how easy it is to install. May be worth including LLVM with GHC binaries for Windows if it isn't easy.

First time user of -fllvm on Windows, I visited the download page here:


llvm-2.9-mingw32-i386.tar.bz2 llvm-gcc4.2-2.9-x86-mingw32.tar.bz2

Extracted them both to one convenient location, updated my PATH env var before calling ghc with -fllvm, seems to work as expected, though compilation is noticeably slower.

Closing as LLVM tools on windows are easy to install and I've just made an effort to Have llvm included as an optional dependency for various Linux distros, OS X includes LLVM by default and I've opened a task with Hackage platform to distribute LLVM with it.
