I’m trying to think of a way to either remove the architecture specific paths to many of those libraries (they’re now x86_64-linux-gnu, but need to be arm-linux-gnueabihf for arm).  I read the modules documentation at http://clang.llvm.org/docs/Modules.html and it doesn’t look like it’s possible to have conditionals in there.  I’m considering whether it’s a good idea to preprocess that file in some way to fill them out with the correct paths in the build scripts.  I went ahead and changed them all (breaking x86_64 for the time being).

They’re emitting unexpected reloc type errors.  It appears that reolc type 0x03 is R_ARM_REL32 which is not permitted for use with shared libraries:
>> CollectionOfOne.swift.tmp/a.out: error while loading shared libraries: /home/wdillon/build/Ninja-ReleaseAssert/swift-linux-armv7/lib/swift/linux/libswiftCore.so: unexpected reloc type 0x03

It would be also helpful if you could find which code contains these
relocations.  Try 'objdump -R libswiftCore.so' or 'readelf -r'.
