Yeah that's probably what we should be looking into.

I gave QEMU a try (in my Linux VirtualBox ;)); after 26 hours of 
building (!), I finally have a LLVM 5.0.0. For other interested 
guys: I can recommend following I gave it 2 gigs of memory and 3 CPU cores (but QEMU itself seems to use only a single CPU host core).

[I'm mainly interested in running the testsuite and checking if 
there's something still missing.]
