I think compiler can and should be host independent, like LLVM.

It is. Changes to code generation depending on the host are considered to be serious bugs, and have been long before LLVM existed.

Perhaps åææ meant target independent, in the sense that with LLVM the choice of target is made at run-time, and not when building LLVM [*]. Just a guess though.

[*] It is possible to choose which targets to build when configuring LLVM.
If only one is chosen then of course that's the only one that can be chosen
at run-time.
