[swift-users] Foundation: build.ninja No such file or directory

What host os are you attempting to build on?

For linux you need to have a configured Foundation initially to run ninja. This means that you need to build swift with the build-script including --foundation and --libdispatch and --xctest

After one successful build you can run ninja in the Foundation directory to build it, and if you need to modify the build scripts (for example including additional files) you can run ./configure --reconfigure
