But when I put my file in example folder and made changes to makefile and build the examples by running make file everything just worked fine. My query is is ther any way that my system automatically finds the header for LLVm and clang whenever I use them like it does for stdio.h and iostream.h or I need to build the example again and again ?

  The tool llvm-config [1] might solve your problem, it will give you
the correct compiler and linker flags. Just make sure the llvm-config
you invoked is the right one.
