I encountered this as well as I was definitely using the most recent development snapshot - swift-DEVELOPMENT-SNAPSHOT-2016-02-25-a-osx.

The installer said it was successful but I don’t see anything at /Library/Developer/Toolchains.

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.
