For C source files:

cmake -DCMAKE_C_FLAGS="-DSOME_DEF=value -DSOME_OTHER_DEF=value" path/to/llvm

For C++ source files:

cmake -DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-DSOME_DEF=value -DSOME_OTHER_DEF=value" path/to/llvm

I'll add this to the docs.

Please list those defines and I will add an option for enabling them all
with a single -D cmake option.
