+project, it generates the files needed by your build tool. The recommended
+build tool for LLVM is Ninja. Please also read `Building LLVM with CMake

Well it's recommended for LLVM and I used it for LLDB on Windows in the past.
Maybe @zturner knows more about it?

So far, the documentation didn't mention lld. I would recommend using lld to **build** LLDB on Linux, but AFAIK it's not required to build lld along with LLDB.

What generator string would you like to see here instead? (So far I just kept what was there.)
