There are no doubts that cmake does support cross compilation by
itself, the problem is that llvm build system is a bit more complex
than just "build everything with given compiler".

In particular several libraries and tools are built in the beginning
in order to be used later during build process. So, in
cross-compilation case they need to be compiled for both build and
host platform (with separate configurations), so, as it seems to me,
just setting toolchain variable won't work.
