The problem I hit is before I even try compiling in the first place: cmake /src/llvm --help produces an extremely useless list of options, so it's impossible to figure out how to configure it with cmake without looking up online. Compare this to /src/llvm/configure --help, where I can see what the default build will look like and also how I can tweak it for what I want. Even the online documentation is kind of crappy in this regard: e.g., LLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD doesn't tell you *which* targets you can build in the first place. I'm sure most people who do a lot of cmake know these settings by the back of their hand, but if you're like me and totally clueless when it comes to cmake, it's downright confusing.

Well, you can use ccmake to navigate back and forth through available options, their descriptions and values
