[cfe-commits] [patch] Use a distinct build dir in get_started

I normally build llvm with a objdir != srcdir. This makes it easier to
have different directories built with different options or to start a
bootstrap when needed. Not to mention keeping all the obj files is a
single place.

A user recently reported following the getting started guide and had
better results with objdir != srcdir. Do others agree that it is a
good suggestion to new developers to use a distinct objdir? If so, is
the attached patch OK?
