I was attempting to build Swift on a system (specifically, Alpine) which does not have a glibc package.

It may very well be possible to design a cross-compile toolchain to build glibc-free Swift executables from a glibc system.  That kind of question is well outside my knowledge.

But that particular rabbithole does not lead to a swift package for Alpine, so unfortunately, it is of small help for my motivation.
