You will want to do:

mkdir my-llvm-project-dir
cd my-llvm-project-dir

cmake -G Xcode path/to/llvm/source/root

open LLVM.xcodeproj

If you don't specify -G Xcode it will default to a make style project.


PS:  BTW, I guess it is technically written Xcode, not XCode.  The  
command  might be case sensitive.
PPS: Someone should add the -G Xcode (and possibly other example  
targets to) example to the CMake.html doc.
