If you're stuck on the bootstrapping 2 step, starting over and following the newly edited instructions, without the -s flag on that step, should be very quick, since you'll be getting a precompiled archive from our server rather than having to compile it on your system.

For subsequent steps, there will still be compiling involved, since we don't yet have a naming convention for distinguishing libc++ packages from libstdc++ packages, so we don't provide libc++ packages for older OSes.
