[Mesa-dev] [PATCH] build: Fix LLVM shared library detection on systems with libLLVM.so.

Arch Linux ships libLLVM.so.3.7.1 rather than libLLVM-3.7.1.so;
Mesa's configure script failed to find LLVM shared libraries in this
case.  I believe they build LLVM with CMake, but there is still only
one .so file.

This is mostly a strawman.  llvmpipe hasn't built on my system for
quite some time, and I finally got around to figuring out why.  I don't
know much about LLVM build issues (it seems complicated), so feel free
to throw this patch out and do it properly...
