In general, WITH_CLANG_EXTRAS controls the building of extra tools such
as a disassembler, and tools for working on clang itself such as bug
reporting tools.  I don't have a really detailed answer because I've
never enabled the option.  I've always perceived it as being something
most people don't need.  WITHOUT_CLANG_EXTRAS may cut some time from
your build, but it probably won't cut it in half or anything.
