I think I'm going to stick with make for now, since I've never had any 
luck with cmake/ninja.

Ok... From what you've just said. Does that mean I'll running the make 
in that tools/lldb/test runs the swig and python required to get lldb.py

No. I've never had much luck with cmake :-(

Anyway, I'm kicking off a fresh lldb build (i.e. configure in the 
out-of-tree build dir, then a make) now. And I'll postback later on
