Yes, a simple if statement is much simpler than the overly complex patch I had.

Do we need $LLVM_DIR? Shouldn't users just have that in their $PATH?

Also, I think we need to support suffixed binaries, as debian
distributes these with version suffixes, as Nathan points out. Or do
the debian packages install suffixed binaries AND path versioned
non-suffixed binaries?

I'm not sure the second one that recommends changing cc/c++ is the way
to go; I think it might harm hermeticity.

Lol, maybe?
