I beg to differ.

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  43970528 Mar 22 12:28 /dist/pkg/lib/libLLVM.dylib
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  44233996 Mar 22 12:54 /dist/pkg/lib/libLLVM/libLLVM.dylib

And both have the same cmakes.

So, having additional libLLVM:
- provides redundant functionality;
- occupies unnecessary disk space (proving a user has both lang/llvm and lang/libLLVM installed);
- makes bulk builds slower;
- requires additional maintenance when update arrives.

Concluding, I opt for annihilating lang/libLLVM. :)
