The manual is there but the tool is missing. It's needed to build rust using the system LLVM.
This task depends upon

I commented on the relevant upstream reports; not much else we can do.

Upstream did remedy this problem in, there is now an additional flag. Upstream stated "Since LLVM 3.8 you can supply -DLLVM_INSTALL_UTILS=ON to CMake to install FileCheck and friends."

I propose adding -DLLVM_INSTALL_UTILS=ON to the PKGBUILD for llvm. Prehaps the utils should be split up from the main package since it's focused on developers. If so, I would propose calling this package `llvm-utils`.

I just tried to cross-compile llvm to arm architecture and noticed that the executable clang-tblgen is missing (llvm-tblgen is present in package llvm, clang-tblgen only in clang35, but not in clang). The fix proposed by @eyl installs this binary as well. Please apply it.
