is there a workaround to build the package, without having to downgrade clang to 'clang=3.8.1' ?

Hi @Tuetuopay: I've incorporated your patch. Thanks.

Here is a patch that implements commit 09cbffb. Without it, swift fails to compile. Is it possible to integrate it in the package ?

Any way to build this package without downgrading clang and the associated tools?

You can find the older packages in the Arch package archive:

For those of us without an old version of clang hanging around, whats the easiest way to get 3.8.1 for building this package?

Hmm, I had patched the preview releases (, but I don't remember encountering it here... Sorry about that; should be fixed now.

Not sure how this has been working for everyone else but there is a typo in the build script of the 3.0.1 release and it is impossible to build for me.

Added a patch to fix the typo:

You'll need to downgrade the whole set (clang, llvm, llvm-libs, plus lib32-llvm-libs if you have it installed too). You can re-upgrade them after building swift, since the old version is only needed for building it.

:: resolving dependencies...
:: no results found for clang=3.8.1

I can't downgrade to clang=3.8.1 because
:: clang: installing llvm-libs (3.8.1-1) breaks dependency 'llvm-libs=3.9.0-1'

Then, what should i do ?
