[clangd-dev] Compiling clangd to WebAssembly

Hi Jonathan,

We don't have any clangd-specific extensions to the buildsystem used by
LLVM, the CMakeLists.txt inside clangd directories merely list the
libraries and binaries we need to build.
I don't think any of clangd developers ever tried building it for
WebAssembly, so we're probably not of much help here.

You might have better luck asking on the LLVM and clang mailing lists
(llvm-dev and cfe-dev, respectively). If anyone successfully built clang
for WebAssembly, building clangd the same way should probably work.
