Install cmake files to lib/cmake/llvm

This is the right location for platform-specific files.

On some distributions (e. g. Exherbo), a package can be installed for several
architectures in parallel, but the architecture-independent files are shared.
Therefore, we must not install architecture-dependent files (like the CMake
config and export files) to share/.
