I tried to get Alchemy working with llvm-lua and ran into problems since
Alchemy uses LLVM version 2.1 and llvm-lua is using version 2.4. The bitcode
& .ll files are not comptable between those two versions. I even tried using
the C backend with llvm-lua to compile Lua scripts into pure C and then
compile that C code with Alchemy, but that failed to compile/run correctly.
There are two options:
1. Wait for Alchemy to be upgrade to LLVM 2.4
2. Backport llvm-lua to LLVM 2.1
I don't have the time right now to try backporting llvm-lua to the 2.1.
