There may be a bug in the build-script. FWIW, the instructions in the
build-script seem to indicate the correct syntax is
installable_package="/tmp/xcode-xyz-root.tar.gz" but that's probably not
the issue. It seems more likely that the code building the tarball is
leaving out the SwiftShims module.
