The question remains: even when building from SVN does it require
swig 1.3.25?  That sort of limits development platforms considerably.
Is committing swig-runtime.h to SVN sufficient to use an older version
of swig?  (mostly, I want to make sure that I can continue development
on FC5 for the next 6-8 months).
