Mono - Speeding up your llvm compile

If you are building llvm so you can then configure and build mono to use it, then you can speed up the compile by removing the tests as they take as long, if not longer, then the llvm runtime binaries.

I could not find a llvm configure option to skip the test directory, but you you just delete it (or move it out of the llvm directory) before you configure/compile llvm, then you will receive a warning that it was not find, but the compile will proceed normally.

Note: You could also mod the llvm configuration (configure/Makefile) to skip the tests.
