Package: llvm-3.2
Version: 3.2-2
Severity: normal


  Currently, llvm is built without RTTI support, as reported by llvm-config:
llvm-config-3.2 --cxxflags
[...] -fno-rtti [...]

  I'm currently packaging POCL (a free Portable OpenCL implementation) and some of
its driver require rtti.

A discussion about this problem can be found here:

LLVM doc even recommend to enable it when packaging it:
