That is correct.

Ryan, did you install the 2.2 stable snapshot? It is expected that that snapshot doesn't include the Swift package manager (swift-build). If you want it, you should install the development snapshots.

However when I do 'which swift' in my terminal it points to a binary in /usr/bin.  When I run 'swift build --help' I get '<unknown>:0: error: no such file or directory: 'build'' so clearly it is not the right swift binary.  I am not sure where the binary came from in /usr/bin but I cant delete it because OSX is telling me that it is needed by the operating system.  Has anyone encountered this before?

IIRC you're supposed to use xcode-select, or change the toolchain within Xcode itself, instead of putting the toolchain directly in your path. You can then use `xcrun swift` to run swift with the correct environment set up.
