[swift-build-dev] SwiftPM Boostrap Crash

Ok that was a real facepalm then drag your hand down your face for
emphasis moment.

The swift file I was trying to compile was called `test.swift` which
would become `test` once a linked executable. However I was in the root
of the https://github.com/apple/swift repository that already has a
`test` directory. That is why it couldn't link. Sigh. Once I renamed it
to `ryan` it compiled and linked just fine.

Which then led me back to the actual problem, i.e., could not build
swiftpm. Still not sure **exactly** what was causing the issue but I was
able to get past it.

I started comparing the configuration, home brew, env config, etc, of my
work laptop (that didn't work) and my personal laptop (that did work)
and I noticed that my work machine had a bunch of homebrew packages that
my personal didn't. I uninstalled everything on my work laptop that
wasn't on my personal machine. Voila, it builds again.

Apologies for the radio silence. And thank you for all the support that
you were not required to give; it is appreciated.
