[swift-corelibs-dev] libdispatch on Linux, or C++ std::async?

I'm working on https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-710, which involves porting
SourceKit to Linux. SourceKit contains a handful of references to
I have two questions:
1. Could someone share a set of instructions to build
swift-corelibs-libdispatch on Linux? I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 and have
installed [the dependencies listed here](
I have tried using both `swift/utils/build-script --libdispatch` as well as
the instructions in the swift-corelibs-libdispatch `INSTALL` file. Both
fail with the [same errors](
2. I don't know much about C++, but from what I understand the C++ stdlib
provides tools for asynchronous programming. I list SourceKit's uses of
libdispatch in a comment on https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-1639. For
those familiar with both C++ and libdispatch: do you think it's a good idea
to migrate to C++, at least for now?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!
