[needs packaging] compiler-rt

Bug #701836 reported by Ryan C. Gordon
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Ubuntu 10.10 already packages clang (the LLVM-based C compiler), and ships that with support for the "Blocks" C language extension, but does not package compiler-rt, which is needed to link Blocks-using code. This is a prerequisite for Linux systems to offer something equivalent to Mac OS X's "Grand Central Dispatch" functionality.

License: dual-licensed as MIT and UIUC: http://llvm.org/docs/DeveloperPolicy.html#license
Notes: compiler-rt can be built to only offer the Blocks runtime and not a full libgcc replacement.
