Removing compiler-rt from projects sources enables cmake step to succeed.
The error message is:
CMake Error at projects/compiler-rt/cmake/config-ix.cmake:87 (message):
  Cannot compile for aarch64:

  error: unknown value 'aarch64' for -march

Not sure what r181130 is supposed to do, though, since it introduces a
buggy option.

I should also mention that the doc at
should be updated since it seems that configure is deprecated in favor of cmake.
