I am using this configure line:

./configure --disable-assertions --disable-debug --enable-optimized
--enable-optimized --disable-threads --disable-shared

The last part: --disable-shared is the key switch, without it your libclang
will depends on libLLVM.so (or something like that)
To test the build, simply run 'ldd libclang.so'

2. What about header files and similar. Is it enough to have the system

prefix) and its enough
code completion is working without a problem (a bit slow on Windows on a
real world application and not 'Hello World') - but it is working properly

3. Anything else I've forgotten about
If you plan on providing the binary on Linux, I suggest that you use an
older g++ version to build libclang with (I am using g++4.4.1, although I
could use 4.7) this will "lower" the glibc requirements and you will be able
to use the same binary on different distros
