[swift-users] Building Swift 3 under ArchLinux

I've never tried building from the Swift repository, and I think you
don't need to do it either.
What I do is just installing from the AUR, if you install the 'swift'
package it will compile the last release for you, if you install
'swift-bin' it will repackage the ubuntu binary for arch.
If you want to try Swift 3 (I have done this), there are the 'swift-
development' and 'swift-development-bin' which will repackage the
ubuntu binary or compile from source respectively.
