The ErLLVM backend of HiPE, which for the last two years or so is part 
of Erlang/OTP, currently works only for x86 and x86_64 architectures 
running Linux/Unix.  It requires LLVM version 3.5 or 3.6 -- we need to 
provide a small fix in order to work for later LLVM releases because the 
format of instructions was changed.

As Mikael wrote, we have no plans to support HiPE on the s390.
