The script was never intended to be run manually. Its interface is rather
inconvenient for this. If you need to run a single test, it's easier to do
using llvm-lit (`path/to/lit test/file.cpp`). But if you for some reason
want to run the script directly, it should be possible to just modify PATH
or switch to the bin directory of the build. I don't think this flag is
