IIRC you recently spotted that the Suse packaging was building LLVM
with separate shared libraries.
This is something which gets flagged with this (admittedly) quirky test.

Quick look [1] shows that Gentoo still uses separate shared libs :-\

I think we'd want to keep the best of both - just not sure how to
exactly do that.
--libs/--libfiles was completely busted with LLVM 3.9 and is back to
normal with 4.0.

Could we use that somehow?
