The GNU install dir variables are allowed to be absolute paths (and not necessary with the installation prefix) (and I needed that for the NixOS patch), so always prepending `COMPILER_RT_INSTALL_PATH` as is done doesn't work if that is `CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX` by default.

I agree this thing is a bit ugly, but by that argument I am not doing a new hack for `GNUInstallDIrs` but rather applying an existing ideom consistently in all packages.

The handling of the install prefix in compiler-rt is significantly different from the other parts of LLVM, and so, I think that it may need to be done as a separate larger effort.

compile-rt is skipped in the latest version, and I have an independent https://reviews.llvm.org/D101497 laying the groundwork for a future `GNUInstallDirs`-adding patch to do the regular thing.
