No prob.  Hopefully we can iron out these wrinkles.

This fails miserably in part because the installed llvm cmake files reference build time paths, but even after fixing that, there are tons of build failures.  I'm guessing this is still a work in progress, but if I should file bugs, please let me know.

They match revision.  We just need to split the build into two subports to break dependency cycles, and I'm hoping to avoid rebuilding the core libraries a second time.
