DEPENDENCIES

Clang 3.4+

SDKs with .tdb stubs (>= Xcode 7) require the TAPI library to be installed.
=> https://github.com/tpoechtrager/apple-libtapi

musl-libc based systems require the musl-fts library to be installed. => https://github.com/pullmoll/musl-fts

Optional, but recommended:

llvm-devel (For Link Time Optimization Support)
uuid-devel (For ld64 -random_uuid Support)
llvm-devel + xar-devel (For ld64 -bitcode_bundle Support)
libdispatch (For parallelism in ld64 / libcodedirectory.c)

You can find xar here.
Do not install libxar-dev on Ubuntu, it's a different package.
