LLVM 3.5 is the last version which still has the old JIT backend,
which is what Pure still needs right now. LLVM 3.4 would work just as
well, but that's not available in the AUR, and LLVM 3.3 is 2 years
older than 3.5, so I'd rather not use it if I can avoid it.

You might ask why I've not updated Pure to the new JIT yet. In fact,
that has been on my TODO list for a long time, but I've been busy with
other projects, and it's not straightforward because Pure needs the
ability to recompile a function on the spot, which the new MCJIT
doesn't offer any more, so I'll have to rewrite Pure's entire code
generator for the MCJIT.
