I think the issue is that '-lpthread -ldl' are being specified too
early on the link line, before the object files.  Could you try
editing the link command to put '-lpthread -ldl' at the end and
retrying it in the build directory after the failure?

For a package build, I would also recommend running the build script
in preset mode and using the 'buildbot_linux_1404' preset:

$ ./swift/utils/build-script --preset=buildbot_linux_1404

This will build the package the same way as the swift.org packages.
