llvm-gcc4 links in the objects and libraries built by LLVM, so you can't
remove them.

The recommended way to build any gcc or variant is in a separate obj
directory. It will make things much easier when you want to rebuild (rm
-rf *).

You can install anywhere you like, just set --prefix=/path/to/install/to
on your llvm-gcc configure command.
