As far as I know they are not shipped with the LLVM installer for windows,
there where some talk of including a LLVM.[lib|dll] but it doesn't seem to
have gone very far.

We are using this script to generate a LLVM.dll for our use case.

It should be possible to use that in the official build.

Cheers, Jakob.
