Ticket #1075 (closed todo: fixed)
Add Configure probes for LLVM
|Reported by:||whiteknight||Owned by:||jkeenan|
The new JIT system will be based, at least initially, on LLVM. We are going to need a way in Configure.pl to either detect it automatically or to specify it on the commandline:
perl Configure.pl --jit=/path/to/llvm
I think very likely we are going to want to be able to detect other JIT engines as well, notably libJIT.
Once detected, we are probably going to want to define macros in the C source like PARROT_JIT_HAS_LLVM, or PARROT_JIT_HAS_LIBJIT.
