LLVM only needs llvm-gcc to translate from C/C++ to LLVM IR. If you
already have code in LLVM IR form (e.g. because you're generating it on
the fly or you have your own front-end) you don't need llvm-gcc.

Take a look at the llvm/examples directory. There are several small
programs that create LLVM IR on the fly and JIT compile it.
