If you mean 
this does build hello-world but fails on every other reasonable program I've 
tried it with (internal error: getMBlock: mmap: Invalid argument). And if the 
compilation should succeed the compiled program won't run (segfault because 
of mmap() or munmap()). 
It's exactly the same problem with my home made build so I don't think it's of 
much use at the moment.
