Or some magic to use automatically 'llvm-gcc' as CC by default, if  
llvm-gcc is available in the path. If not then as usual, use 'gcc' as  
CC by default. (and same for CXX). I am not sure how to achieve this.

Since llvm-gcc FE resides in separate source repository, 'make  
bootstrap' does not make sense unless both projects are checked out  

BTW, GCC community is moving away from 'make bootstrap' for GCC  
builds. GCC 4.2 build bootstraps by default unless it is disabled at  
configuration time.
