A year ago LLVM did not support building the utilies in the CMake build. Mainly, the `FileCheck` binary is missing. This binary is required for building Rust and out-of-tree LLVM development. This issue has been brought up before ( and closed due to a missing option from upstream.

Upstream did remedy this problem in a bug report referenced by the Arch Linux task above. The solution ( is 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`.

Additional info:
* llvm 3.9.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Install current llvm package
* `FileCheck` binary is missing
This task depends upon
