I have successfully built the JIT branch against LLVM 4.0.1 on Debian testing.
This is not enough for Debian stable (LLVM 3.9 is the latest available there),
but it's a first step.
I've split the patch in four files. The first three fix the build issues, the
last one fixes a runtime issue.
I think they are small enough to not be a burden for you in your developments.
But if you don't want to carry these ifdefs right now, I maintain them in a
branch on a personal git and rebase as frequently as I can.

LLVM 3.9 support isn't going to be hard, but I prefer splitting. I also hope
this will help more people test this wonderful toy… :)
