VMKit: Problem compiling vmkit


I'm trying to compile vmkit but am running into some problems. I followed the instructions at http://vmkit.llvm.org/get_started.html and checked out llvm and clang from svn, compiled them no problem and the same with classpath 0.97.2. I then checked out vmkit from svn and tried to build it. All these are located at /home/callum/vmkit/{llvm,classpath-0.97.2,vmkit}.

I used this to configure vmkit:

./configure --with-llvmsrc="$PRE/llvm" \
--with-llvmobj="$PRE/llvm" \
--with-gnu-classpath-glibj="$PRE/classpath-0.97.2/lib/glibj.zip" \
--with-gnu-classpath-libs="$PRE/classpath-0.97.2/lib" \

but when I try make this happens:

callum@callum-vm:~/vmkit/vmkit$ make ENABLE_OPTIMIZED=1
llvm[0]: Constructing LLVMBuild project information.

make: *** [all] Error 1

Am I using the wrong versions of llvm/vmkit together? Or the configure options wrong? Is there a release of vmkit that works with llvm 3.1 (I can see up to llvm 3.0 on the website http://vmkit.llvm.org/releases/index.html) as the bindings library I'm using depends of llvm 3.1.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Callum,

You followed the instructions right. I just udpated vmkit to the new LLVM API and everything should compile now.
