I run this in the source directory.

Given that I run gen-make.py, with a particular version of swig, in
the source directory it's not clear how I can have multiple build
directories using different versions of swig. I don't do that sort of
thing very often, in fact I rarely build the bindings at all, but I
have done it in the past when experimenting with new versions of swig.
