To put it the another way: is there a reason to disallow
compiling llvm-gcc (optionally) against an installed LLVM (e.g.
from the Debian package)? It seems to work fine with this patch
Mikael posted.

For us at TCE project* it's a bit nuisance as even though the TCE
user might have LLVM (and native llvm-gcc) installed from Debian,
he still needs to download LLVM sources just for recompiling llvm-gcc to
be used as the TCE cross-compiler.
