Reviewed it, and (the) static build for F# IDE with LLVM codepaths (in
disassembly) makes sense if ObjC is present. That is quite minimal and
effective enough for that language's intended audience.

Without ObjC, LLVM means an esoteric wrapper around C++ mangle for
Java/JavaScript compatibility. Locale may be static or non-static in such
