$ rm subversion/bindings/swig/python/*.c
$ make install-swig-py # note that gmake shouldn't be necessary

It may be that the bindings did not get properly rebuilt at some point.
There are still some nigglies in the build system for the bindings.

The configure script was updated the other day to allow 1.3.19. That is in
the SVN trunk, and will appear in the 0.21 release.

Regarding Python.h -- make sure that you have the development stuff
installed for Python. (I'm not sure how it works on FreeBSD, but under
RedHat, I'd install the python-devel RPM).
