I was successfully able to run cmake on llvm and clang sources using visual studio as the generator and then I used the visual studio solution to successfully build the executables.
Where as when I run cmake using the “mingw makefiles” as the generator the make file gets generated successfully ,but building of the executables fails when mingw32-make is run on the generated make file.For some versions of mingw(5.1) it results in compilation errors and for some versions (8.2) it stops while trying to link LTO.dll.
So I would like to know if it is possible to run cmake and build the executables using a non visual studio generator.
If yes which all generators are supported?
If no do llvm/clang sources internally have dependencies on the visual studio generator?
Thanks in advance.
