You do need to build clang in order to compile your changes for the static analyzer.
Using ninja builds could be faster. I do not know if we have detailed documentation on using cmake with ninja..

You’d also need to check your changes by running the regression tests as described in http://llvm.org/docs/TestingGuide.html. It is possible to only run tests in a single folder by running lit directly. All static analysis tests are in tests/Analysis.
