Doesn't look too hard, just changing '--with-as=${prefix}/bin/as' in the
portfile to '--with-as=${prefix}/bin/llvm-as-mp-7.0' for example. But
we're already telling the gcc ports --with-as=${prefix}/bin/as
specifically, which makes the change in behaviour with a different PATH
a bit puzzling.

Anyway I agree that cctools 'as' should be running the llvm-as from the
llvm port that cctools depends on.
