AC_ARG_WITH is used to specify a package, while AC_ARG_ENABLE is to turn
on/off features. In this case, the "proper" thing to do is use ARG_WITH and
enable path processing. That would allow a person to do:

$ ./configure --with-swig=/home/gstein/src/SWIG

So that I can use a private copy of SWIG (which has the Right Version),
instead of the system copy.
