acovea for llvm

Has anyone tried acovea on llvm, acovea is a fairly popular software
package that uses GAs(Genetic Algorithms) to tune compiler
command-line settings to optimize the performance for a given
application. It works with gcc for sure.

Is acovea still being distributed? The link that I was able to find
(http://www.coyotegulch.com/products/acovea/) is no longer valid.

I think it is still be hosted on some bzr servers.

Thanks
