Updated source from svn, rebuilt, and this time did
  make install
and llvm-config now seems to behave itself.  It would definitely be good 
to place make install in the getting started documentation.as a separate 
installation step, after gmake -j2 and before the discussion of other 
possible make targets.  Yes, gmake install is mentioned in that 
discussion, but not as an installation step.  It would have helped 
keeping me from going astray.

Incidentally, in the section "Local LLVM Configuration" you should 
explicitly mention the "--prefix" option.  Yes, I know it's mentioned in 
the |Getting Started Quickly" section, but the whole thing ends up being 
a bit like the two creation stories at the beginning of Genesis -- 
they're not the same.  The naive reader will likely be following the more 
detailed of the sets of instructions, and miss the option entirely.
