In my normal workflow I just re-run `check-llvm` or `check-clang` over and over again, only building the `all` target before I post a patch. With that workflow I only build the library once per-patch to ensure that it builds. Which is exactly the goal of not having it be included.

That's your workflow. I need to run 'make install' because the modifications are used by an external project. If there's an option to skip shlib during 'make install' I'd be happy to use it.

I'm pretty sure more people would appreciate not installing large duplicate libraries, but if a hidden option will do, I'll update the patch.
