[lldb-dev] Why do we support both configure and cmake generation?

This is an issue on the LLVM side too.  There's a master bug somewhere on
the LLVM side tracking this, but the TL;DR is that CMake doesn't support
everything (particularly when it comes to install) that the configure build
supports.  Most of the interested players that I'm aware of have said they
won't mind dropping Make in favor of CMake once those issues are taken care
of.  But FWIU they're not easy.
