Build issues

Edit: It seems like upgrading CMake to the latest stable version seems to have fixed the problem.


I am not sure if I am the only one, but there's seems to be an issue when building swift (fresh checkout). I am using Xcode 11.3.1 and macOS Catalina 10.15.3.

There seems to be a few errors actually when building with build-script -x -r --skip-build-benchmarks (tried --clean and --reconfigure too but they make no difference):

-- Detecting CXX compile features - done

Did something change recently? Ninja has a similar issue (related to CMake) so it doesn't seem to be related to Xcode.

Can you try the build with CMake 3.15.1 or newer?

I have upgraded to CMake 3.16.3 (via brew) and that seems to have fixed the problem! Thanks for the help anyway! Maybe the upgrade from 10.15.1 to 10.15.3 messed up something...
