[Bug 12995] New: Cannot build, there is no swig on Mac OS X 10.7 with XCode 4.3.2


             Bug #: 12995
           Summary: Cannot build, there is no swig on Mac OS X 10.7 with
                    XCode 4.3.2
           Product: lldb
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: All Bugs
        AssignedTo: lldb-dev@cs.uiuc.edu
        ReportedBy: Per.Mildner@sics.se
    Classification: Unclassified

Installed XCode 4.3.2, and its command line tools. Mac OS X 10.7.4 (recently
updated from 10.6.x).

Followed the build instructions.
Build fails with "Error: could not find the swig binary"

The build script looks for swig in /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin but there is no
swig in those folders (or anywhere else on my machine).

(I tried a workaround and installed MacPorts swig and sym-linked from
/usr/local/bin to the MacPorts version but it did not work, build failed with
"Error: Unable to find 'python.swg'")

Checked out lldb May 31, 2012, using the instructions at the downloads page.

This was a bug with a specific setup, not the code.
