Bingo, thanks (swig-ignore-hack.patch was it). The moral of the story
appears to be "don't use SWIG 1.3.17, use 1.3.16 if you want to build
without patches". I thought it was just an omission and the configure
script meant to say "1.3.16 or later". There were a couple of other
doc mentions that made me think the configure script was aat fault.
subversion/bindings/swig/INSTALL includes:

  Step 1: Build & install the proper version of SWIG (which is
           currently swig 1.3.14 or greater).

and subversion/bindings/swig/README begins:

  NOTE: the bindings code is being developed using SWIG 1.3.12.
  Earlier versions of SWIG will simply *not* work.

So either the README and INSTALL files should change, or the configure
script and code should change to support >= 1.3.16 (or 1.3.17?)
