Error at linking time

I was trying to build my own custom backend (GitHub - MaxBubblegum47/LLVM_13_MBLAZE: This is a fork of LLVM 13.0.1 with the implementation of MBLAZE's support), but I got this strange error:

I don’t how to manage it, do you have any suggestions to me?

Thank you so much! I solved the error, was totally my fault because I didn’t handle very well a virtual method :frowning:
