LLVM OCaml bindings disabled

LLVM, the C compiler, has OCaml bindings to its internals[1].

In the latest version they are generated using an OCaml library called
'ctypes'[2] (instead of however they were generated before -- maybe
written by hand or something).

Since we don't yet package ocaml-ctypes for Fedora, we've decided to
disable the LLVM OCaml bindings.

If this is something you care about this, please add ocaml-ctypes to
Fedora and then the bindings can be reenabled in LLVM.
