I think Laurent wants to include it directly in the next MacRuby installer.
Though I was just thinking we should be careful not to overwrite the
version of LLVM the user might have, putting our version in MacRuby's
directory, not at the place we MacRuby developers have it installed
currently (/usr/local).

At first I was thinking we might be able to use the final 2.6, but
it's in a pretty bad shape. We could not use LLVM 2.5 because of
problems regarding exception handling. And it looks like we won't be
able to use LLVM 2.6 because of... problems regarding exception
