I vote for A because at this stage LLVM is primarily used by developers 
and with all the changes made.. its good to have it set by default to 
compile everything, and run tests for all targets. Not everyone really 
checks the nightly-tester (ie. how many notice the sparc test failures or 
even care?). Now if someone is working on a specific backend where changes 
do not impact other targets, they can easily configure to only compile 
that one target.

I think this subject should be revisited when llvm becomes more
