llvm2cpp: invalid bytecode signature

After compiling llvm and the cfrontend, I tried to
run llvm2cpp on a few of the .ll files in the
test/Regression directory. When I try this, I get
the following error:

llvm2cpp: Invalid bytecode signature: 5552203B (Vers=0,Pos=4)

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

Todd
