You may be interested in the new series of OCaml Journal articles about the
creation of compilers for functional languages using LLVM from OCaml that I
just announced on this list. However, the articles currently only cover
statically typed functional languages (like OCaml and F#). If there is
sufficient interest in the compilation of dynamically typed languages then
that could be addressed in later articles.
Is anyone interested in that?

Yes. I also discovered Pure when I began using LLVM and it served as an
excellent case study.
