[swift-dev] Building swift-llvm fails when using build-script to cross compile due to multiple -isysroot arguments being in CFLAGS

[Adding Vedant directly]
I'm not super familiar with the swift build scripts, but I have a theory of what is going wrong. I think the problem is that compiler-rt is being built during the cross build, and it really shouldn't be.
The compiler-rt build system has some significant flaws, and it is being reworked to resolve them. The problem causing this is that we have a hacked up CMake build process that generates multiple cross-targeted binaries from a single build configuration. I believe that compiler-rt's built-in hacky cross-targeting is tripping over however swift is supporting cross-targeting, and it is falling over.
With the current state of compiler-rt the right way to build it for Darwin is to treat it as host content, and it will build the Darwin-cross libraries too. Then you can pull the cross-libraries out and put them into the device build.
Vedant, if you have questions feel free to swing by my office on Monday.
