It's --with-PACKAGE[=DIR] and --enable-FEATURE. SWIG is a package, not a
feature. And I *do* care, because lots of people will be confused if we
use the wrong switch. So, please make that --with-swig[=DIR] and
--without-swig.

(Note that --with-swig=no is the same as --without-swig, and that plain
--with-swig is the same as --with-swig=yes. No, you don't have to do
anything to make that work, autoconf will do it for you.)
