Null dereference on 64-bit LLVM builds #18

As of now, on line 359 in vm/llvm/jit.cpp, ExecutionEngine::create() returns NULL. Then, on line 362, this null pointer is dereferenced, causing a segfault. As I know nothing about LLVM, I can't really say much more than this.

This is the segfault caused when compiling readline on my 64-bit Jaunty, GCC 4.3.3.

That was just due to wrong LLVM version, using revision 73074 yields different errors.

Should be fixed now, it's possible to run it with LLVM 73074
