Fail linking against -lstdc++ when building with `swift`

I am working on a Swift library that wraps LibRaw. I have libraw installed via homebrew and everything works great from Xcode. But when I try building my app / library from the CLI with swift I get a linker error:
ld: library not found for -lstdc++

I unterstand, that libstdc++ is deprecated on macOS and you should link against libc++. However, I wonder why the build works from within Xcode?

And what should be the correct fix? Should the hombrew formula for libraw patch the library to link against libc++ instead?

I can "fix" the problem by changing the libraw.pc file installed from homebrew to:

Libs: -L${libdir} -lraw -lstdc++ --> Libs: -L${libdir} -lraw -lc++

Maybe somebody knows how it should work and can share some insights :)

I am using the following module map for my libraw systemTarget:

module Clibraw [system] {
    umbrella header "Clibraw.h"
    link "raw"
    export *
// Clibraw.h:

#import <libraw/libraw.h>
