Statical linking result a very large perf executable. This patch makes
perf link clang libraries dynamically by using '-lclangBasic' style
linking option. If dynamic clang libraries are detected, gcc will use
them by default.

 Test result:

 (Build clang/llvm dynamically by setting -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON
  in its cmake configuration.)

 $ size ~/perf
 text      data     bss         dec        hex      filename
 4223234   754544   23956048    28933826   1b97ec2  /home/wn/perf

 $ strip ~/perf
 $ ls -sh ~/perf
 4.8M /home/wn/perf

 Compare with statical linking:
 $ ls -sh ~/perf
 969M /home/wn/perf
 $ strip ~/perf
 $ ls -sh ~/perf
 52M /home/wn/perf
