So what *do* XCode users do (to build llvm/clang)? Do they somehow set
up XCode to build using the autoconf build system? Do they build
llvm/clang outside of XCode?

If the answer to either of the last two questions is "yes", then what is
stopping XCode users from using the CMake build system with the normal
makefile generator, instead of the XCode generator?

(I'm asking in the context of "what is preventing LLVM's CMake build
system from replacing the autoconf build system?")
