RE: [LLVMdev] Link tests are not allowed after GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES

As suggested, I googled and found this interesting answer for above error and behavior:

http://www.mail-archive.com/gcc-bugs@gcc.gnu.org/msg89727.html

I've been investigating why gcc_no_link was true for a while. And found that it was the ld version of llvm - gccld - which caused the error and behavior.

gccld and other llvm tools have a bug originated from Win32/Path.cpp, in my case, on the MinGW platform. I'll leave this discussion in another thread.
