I'm having an interesting time getting this to build on macOS.

First, you need to use a CXX that is reasonably similar to the CC.
Otherwise, the CXX will complain about things like attributes not
being supported etc.  That's not surprising, but it's a support issue
that we'll have to prepare ourselves for.

Using my standard set of CC=gcc-7 and CXX=g++-7, the build fails with

g++-7: error: unrecognized command line option '-stdlib=libc++'

That comes from llvm-config --cxxflags, which was apparently made for
/usr/bin/cc (which is clang).

I see here the same problems as we had in the olden days with Perl,
where it gave us a bunch of compiler flags that applied to the system
compiler but not the compiler currently in use.  We should just take the
flags that we really need, like -I and -L.  Maybe we don't need it at all.

Trying it again then with CC=/usr/bin/cc and CXX=/usr/bin/c++, it
fails with

In file included from llvmjit_inline.cpp:25:
In file included from ../../../../src/include/jit/llvmjit.h:16:
In file included from
In file included from
error: templates must have C++ linkage

Using this patch gets it past that:

It seems that it was intended that way anyway, since llvmjit.h contains
its own provisions for extern C.

Then, I'm getting this error:

It seems the problem here is linking C++ with the C compiler.  If I
hack in to use c++ in the above command, it continues, and the build

configure didn't find any of the LLVMOrc* symbols it was looking for.
Is that a problem?  They seem to be for some debugging support.

So, how do I turn this on then?  I see a bunch of new GUC settings
that are all off by default.  Which ones turn the feature(s) on?
