You need to add your target to autoconf/configure.ac. Here are the
directions from http://llvm.org/docs/WritingAnLLVMBackend.html

To get LLVM to actually build and link your target, you need to add it to
the TARGETS_TO_BUILD variable. To do this, you modify the configure script
to know about your target when parsing the --enable-targets option. Search
the configure script for TARGETS_TO_BUILD, add your target to the lists
there (some creativity required), and then reconfigure. Alternatively, you
can change autotools/configure.ac and regenerate configure by running
