-DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON will give you shared libraries for each component
(libLLVMSupport.so instead of libLLVMSupport.a, etc.)

What you want to set is -DLLVM_BUILD_LLVM_DYLIB=ON. For this to work, you
must *not* set -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON.

If you also want all the tools (clang, llvm-*, etc.) to link against
libLLVM.so, you'll want to set -DLLVM_LINK_LLVM_DYLIB=ON, otherwise you'll
have libLLVM.so but the tools will be linked against the static libraries.
