Building APA

Hey, I think I might be having a build problem. I says here [https://agora.cs.illinois.edu/display/llvmgroup/Automatic+Pool+Allocation\] to load LLVMDataStructure.so and poolalloc.so when using "opt" to perform pool allocation. However, I don't have poolalloc.so -- only poolalloc.o. Does anyone know why this might be?

You don't have a .so because the Makefiles have been changed so that
they don't generate dynamic objects.

Try using the new pa tool (it should be in Debug/bin/pa or
Release/bin/pa depending upon what build you performed). The pa tool
statically links in all the required libraries and should be more
convenient to use than opt.

Hi Patrick,

That isn't a publicly viewable URL.
