>>> I am now running into this error now that clang13 has released.  I cannot figure a way around this. I do not see any cmake options similar to the tablegens that allow you to specify the binary for the build system.  Am I missing something or is clang13 just broken for cross compilation?
>> Another confirmation that this change has broken cross compilation. I have tried setting both `-DCLANG_TOOLING_BUILD_AST_INTROSPECTION=OFF` and `-DCMAKE_CROSSCOMPILING=ON` separately and in combination. This means that LLVM cannot be cross compiled for AArch64, which is a pretty serious problem!

> Add this is well to your cmake invocation. For some reason this triggers in cmake that we are cross-compiling. Why -DCMAKE_CROSSCOMPILING=ON is insufficient I have no idea why. I'm compiling on linux for linux, didn't think I'd need it.  Kind of unintuitive, but that should hopefully get you going.

I believe the relevant bit of CMake logic is https://gitlab.kitware.com/cmake/cmake/-/blob/a2e42a577b08dc65ba801e18e5c8be163df83455/Modules/CMakeDetermineSystem.cmake#L136-158. If `CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME` isn't set, it'll set `CMAKE_CROSSCOMPILING` to `FALSE` internally.
