Is that a problem? Installers generally run with administrator rights
(choco, for example, requires running from an Administrator PowerShell
and that's how most folks I know install LLVM on Windows).
Developers generally need to enable developer mode if they want to run
things that they've built (and doing so is a single toggle switch in
Settings, so it's not a massive obstacle). It should be fairly easy to
try running mklink during CMake if this option is enabled and, if it
fails, error out and tell the person running the build to either enable
developer mode or switch to separate-program builds.
