I build only clover+r600, mostly to occasionally check that libclc
still works as expected. I don't expect mixing of LLVM versions to work
(although with versioned symbols it should).
I can always fall back to older mesa release for this, but building
from one source is nice, feel free to go ahead with Francisco's ack.
