The upcoming LLVM linker might be locked with its corresponding LLVM
release. This will enforce us to new enough llvm+clang+lld+lldb in the
same version or go for bundling all of them and in the result link
several libraries with different versions of LLD.

An alternative approach is to have one bootstrapped compiler for pkgsrc,
it might solve some problems and create other ones for less popular
