Swift depends on the source code of several other projects, like LLVM (for general compiler tools) and CommonMark (for parsing documentation), so you need to pull several other repos into specific folders next to the Swift source code's folder to build it. This is automated by the "utils/update-checkout" script. Instructions for this are in the readme's "Getting Sources for Swift and Related Projects" section: <https://github.com/apple/swift#getting-sources-for-swift-and-related-projects>. Once you have, you should be able to use the various commands described in the "Building Swift" section below it.

Hope this helps,
