Please no. On Linux, I have my rusts using system LLVM, or pkgsrc rust
using pkgsrc LLVM (might switch to a provided LLVM just like GCC at
some point). As long as rust seems to happily support external LLVM
with some minimal version, I don't see encouraging vendoring of that
one as a good move. Build times are insane as it is now already.

At least on the platforms where it will be made default, there should
be clear reasons and not some hazy memory;-)

Alrighty then,
