Actually this one is a different problem.  The install(TARGETS)
command is used so it should know the proper location of the file.
However, it looks like ${CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR} is ending up in target
output directory properties.  This is not correct.  The target
output directory properties should be plain paths with no native
build-system macros or placeholders, like $(Configuration) in this

The set_output_directory function in AddLLVM properly replaces
that placeholder and sets per-configuration output directory
properties correctly.  AddCompilerRT.cmake is using the value
That causes this problem.

Much of this could be cleaned up throughout LLVM by avoiding use
of ${CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR} and using generator expressions like
$<TARGET_FILE> to refer to target locations instead.  This quick
fix for compiler-rt though is to adopt set_output_directory.
