Note that you need to build LLVM twice only if you are actively 
debugging LLVM reproduceable deployment images.  You actually don't need 
to build it at all, you can use an external toolchain to skip the first 
build and you can compile WITHOUT_TOOLCHAIN  to avoid building the 
version that's installed and then install a toolchain from packages:
