There is no *correct and tested* step.
For now;

1) CMake build does not handle plugins.
2) configure --enable-shared would be needed. (--enable-optimized
would be needed too)
3) You might need --enable-embed-stdcxx
4) You should build Hello manually after building llvm-shlib.
  $ make -C lib/Transforms/Hello

I have not checked recently if they could work.
Lemme know if you met any faults.
