I was assuming it would provide all of llvm34 (minus clang34). :)

I think the only way for ARM ghc is to do an llvm34 package.
(I don't know when ghc will support 3.5 - perhaps for 7.10 which
is now in development?)  ghc only needs llvm.armv7hl (and llvm-libs).

The alternative seems to be to revert llvm to 3.4 but I assume that
would not be such a popular choice either. :)
