To clarify, the only additional dependency which you should need for simply *using* the package manager is to "sudo apt-get install clang" (swiftc uses "clang++" to perform the actual link).

The full list of dependencies Dmitri gave is only needed if you are also trying to build the Swift compiler from source.

We documented this requirement here:
(step 6) but it may need additional clarification.
