+dnl build with the LLVM backend as this is only given in build.mk.
+dnl

+dnl if so set a flag. The build system will later check this flag
+dnl after the desired build flags are known.
+
+dnl This problem is further complicated by the fact that the llvm
+dnl version used by the bootstrap compiler may be different from the
+dnl version we arre trying to compile GHC against. Therefore, we need
