There are a couple of  things to be aware of in running those scripts.  The first thing is that,
as written, they were intended to be run from Xcode, which means they contain references to
environment variables that Xcode defines in its build process, so they probably won't work for
you 'as is'.    One of the next things on my to do list is to try to modify the scripts to take those
values as parameters instead.  The other thing you should be aware of is that there are two sets of
scripts, the build-swig-... scripts and the finish-swig-... scripts.  The build scripts need to be run fairly early
in the overall build process, because they cause SWIG to build the C++ file(s) for the scripting language API(s) that need to be compiled and linked with all the other source files to create lldb.  The finish-swig... scripts
need to be run after it's all been compiled, to generate links and copy files around to where they need to be
in order for the embedded scripting stuff in lldb to find them properly.
