We can fix this on our end too [1], but I'm waiting for what LLVM will do.

[1] For example:
if(NOT (LDC_LLVM_VER LESS 1000))
    set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD 14 CACHE STRING "C++ standard to conform to")
    set(CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD_REQUIRED YES)
    set(CMAKE_CXX_EXTENSIONS NO)
endif()

I don't think llvm-config should print -std=c++14, because users may
want -std=c++17, -std=c++2a or -std=gnu++2a. Providing a default
CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD value should be ok but overriding it is probably not
a good idea.

Changing C++ standard may change the ABI (aswell as the API), hence it is necessary that llvm-config outputs which c++ standard was used to build LLVM. It was fixed fairly quickly after my forum post btw, so there is no build problem any more.
