Understand your situation now, if you have 3.9.1 clang used as runtime build compiler, then this will cause issues when you specify ENABLE_BCLIB.

Checking that way is good, though personally I am in favor of using find llvm package to check LLVM version. Regardless I think we want the same thing here, i.e. to enable the bc lib path by default.
