Name        : pure

Version     : 0.47
Release     : 3.fc16
URL         : http://code.google.com/p/pure-lang/
Summary     : A term-rewriting functional programming language
Description :
Pure is a modern-style functional programming language based on term
rewriting. It offers equational definitions with pattern matching,
full symbolic rewriting capabilities, dynamic typing, eager and lazy
evaluation, lexical closures, built-in list and matrix support and an
easy-to-use C interface. The interpreter uses LLVM as a back-end to
JIT-compile Pure programs to fast native code.

Update Information:

This updates F-16's LLVM to version 2.9, and rebuilds dependent packages for the soname change.

- Update to 2.9
- Depend on libffi to allow the LLVM interpreter to call external functions
- Build with RTTI enabled, needed by e.g. Rubinius (# 722714)
- Fix multilib installation
- Fix incorrect platform-specific include path on i686

- Build with proper optimization flags (# 694565)
