            Bug ID: 34350
           Summary: Getting Started instructions incomplete when libc++ is
           Product: Website
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: edaskel at att.net

I attempted to build Clang using the instructions at
https://clang.llvm.org/get_started.html, including step 6 "Check out libcxx". 
The subsequent build step fails quickly with a large number of link errors. 
After googling for a while I found a separate page
http://libcxx.llvm.org/docs/BuildingLibcxx.html which indicates that
"libcxxabi" is also required for such a build and indeed, adding that step
fixes the link errors.

I think the Getting Started page should be updated to add the installation of
libcxxabi under step 6, so others may avoid this speed bump.
