I would like to create a fat iOS static library from a bunch of c++ code (multiple projects) with embedded bitcode. I would like to use this library in an Xcode workspace where bitcode is enabled. The server where the c++ code is being built is CentOS based. So I downloaded LLVM 4.0 with clang. With the help of clang and other tools I'm able to compile the code into libraries supporting armv7 and arm64 architectures and create a single fat library (using libtool and lipo). Everything works fine until I would like to achieve a bitcode embedded library. I thought that the only thing I need to do is to add the -fembed-bitcode option to clang. But when I try to export on Mac OS X the archived workspace for ad-hoc distribution, I got a strange error message:
error: Failed to verify bitcode in ***.app/***:

Can anybody help what can be the error? Or my thoughts about how to build a bitcode embedded static library are wrong? Any help is really appreciated!
