The final installed version of something like this would normally put
the .so files into $PREFIX/lib/, and the .py files into either
$PREFIX/lib/lldb (if the user wouldn't normally run them directly) or
into $PREFIX/bin (if they should be in the $PATH).  If your just
wondering where to put output files, though, it would be most
convenient to just compute the paths in the build system and pass them
as arguments to the scripts.
