Do you mean the LLVM tools and libraries (e.g. llvm-as, VMCore.o) or the 
C/C++ compiler support libraries in  llvm/runtime (e.g. crtend.a)?

You can build the LLVM tools and libraries *without* llvm-gcc.

You cannot build the C/C++ support libraries (found in llvm/runtime) 
without llvm-gcc/llvm-g++.  However, we provide pre-compiled versions of 
  llvm-gcc/llvm-g++ for several platforms, so chances are good that you 
won't need to compile it yourself.
