./configure --prefix=/tmp/rust031
-> see http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=snAkhGz5

interestingly, the rust git version compiles fine on this machine. just not 0.3.1.

then i noticed i had clang already installed in this system. i removed it "aptitude purge clang" and it's deps, and then the build worked fine. installed clang version: 3.1 http://packages.debian.org/sid/clang

i suggest the build script tries to detect if there's clang installed already on the host.

I can confirm that removing (purging) 'libllvm-3.0', 'libllvm-3.1' and 'llvm-3.1-runtime' solved this issue for me as well on Debian Wheezy.

Does this work with >=0.4? Can this be closed now?

I cannot reproduce this problem on the current (circa 0.6) version. Closing; @cinch should reopen if the problem persists on his/her machine.
