Trying that gives me:

[ 1 of 68] Compiling Distribution.Compat.Exception ( libraries/Cabal/Cabal/Distribution/Compat/Exception.hs, bootstrapping/Distribution/Compat/Exception.o )
Warning: Couldn't figure out LLVM version!
          Make sure you have installed LLVM
ghc: could not execute: opt-3.0
make[1]: *** [utils/ghc-cabal/dist/build/tmp/ghc-cabal] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm using LLVM 3.1.  This errors makes no sense to me, because when I just use "quick" and not unregistered, it falls back to LLVM and works fine, but now I've selected "quick-llvm" and unregistered and it can't find it?
