I'd like to point out that that the wiki [1] seems confuse people.
If one follows the standard procedure described (the one I had 
followed and that Roberto followed if I understood correctly),
the instructions make the user not install LLVM. Then, it makes 
install LDC using a temporary location of LLVM (check especially
the highlighted snippets). That in turn seems to cause problems.

Should we change that ?
