Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) is:

A compilation strategy designed to enable effective program optimization across
the entire lifetime of a program. LLVM supports effective optimization at
compile time, link-time (particularly interprocedural), run-time and offline
(i.e., after software is installed), while remaining transparent to developers
and maintaining compatibility with existing build scripts.

A virtual instruction set - LLVM is a low-level object code representation that
uses simple RISC-like instructions, but provides rich, language-independent,
type information and dataflow (SSA) information about operands. This combination
enables sophisticated transformations on object code, while remaining
light-weight enough to be attached to the executable. This combination is key to
allowing link-time, run-time, and offline transformations.

A compiler infrastructure - LLVM is also a collection of source code that
implements the language and compilation strategy. The primary components of the
LLVM infrastructure are the C & C++ front-end, a link-time optimization
framework with a growing set of global and interprocedural analyses and
transformations, static back-ends for the X86, X86-64, PowerPC 32/64, ARM,
Thumb, IA-64 and SPARC architectures, a back-end which emits portable C
code, and a Just-In-Time compiler for X86, X86-64, PowerPC 32/64 processors.

Log message:
llvm: Switch PYTHON_FOR_BUILD_ONLY to "tool".

Avoids problems where python is buildlinked, and buildlink dependencies of
python ending up being available during the build but not registered as full
dependencies, resulting in them potentially being unavailable at runtime.
