I deleted the caches again and marked the dyld directories chmod 000. Let's see if that prevents Xcode from recreating the caches, hopefully without causing error messages that cause builds to fail. We now have 21GB free.

I don't want the wear and tear on the SSDs resulting from constantly re-writing 18.5 GB of unwanted data. I want to prevent Xcode from doing that. I am hopeful that the steps I have already taken will prevent that. If not, I will investigate other possibilities.
