On the CMake side, I'm not sure. I think it's just a matter of using the
"install()" functions to install them into the appropriate place in the
tree. They weren't installed by CMake in the first place; I was going to do
that, which is when I was told they shouldn't be distributed.

For Debian packaging, there are a few things.
1) revive the llvm-X.Y-tools.* files, which were in LLVM 3.7. See:
2) add the llvm-X.Y-tools entry back into control. Compare
3) update the "rules" script as necessary to support the above, copying
files into the places that the Debian package layout expects
