LLVM generates code that runs on the GPU, it is only used on the target

It is already fairly stripped down, only a couple of the code generation
targets are built. I don't know if we could leave out X86 as well if
doing a gcc build.

It doesn't help that we build it twice for amd64, building with
MKCOMPAT=no will be faster.
