You simply need to symlink swift.xml into /etc or /opt/swift, since
the library looks for that file in those two locations.
If you specify some other location as /opt/swift while installing swift,
you'll have to do:

ln -s /path/to/swift/etc/swift.xml /etc/swift.xml

Then, everything works as expected.
