[slackware-security]  llvm (SSA:2013-350-03)

New llvm packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/llvm-3.3-i486-3_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  The LLVM package included binaries with an rpath pointing to the build
  location in /tmp.   This allows an attacker with write access to /tmp to
  add modified libraries (and execute arbitrary code) as any user running
  the LLVM binaries.  This updated package rebuilds LLVM to exclude the
  build directories from the rpath information.
  Thanks to Christopher Oliver for the bug report.
  (* Security fix *)
