Hence I thought you were talking about ABI issues with C.

I'm not up on how LLVM frontend integration works, so I actually don't
understand the distinction between "the LLVM C Backend" and "the
native LLVM backends".

Simply, can I write and compile a GTK program with LLVM?

I'd love to use it for the intuitive error reporting, honestly.
