[PATCH] perl bindings: Use non standard Perl version

From: Gerald Richter <richter_at_ecos.de>
Date: 2004-01-13 14:21:31 CET

Hi,

I had to build the perl bindings for a Perl version that is not the default
one which is installed on my system (because default is Perl 5.6.1 and I
can't upgrade to 5.8.0+). Here are two patches: One for
bindings/swig/INSTALL which describes the settings necessary for configure
and one for Makefile.PL which makes sure the correct Perl binary and include
paths are used.

Also I run into a lot of problem with SWIG 1.3.20. I have tried to get it
working, but there were too many problems (I got it to compile by defining
the SWIG_PERL_XXX symbols in swigutil_perl.h, but afterward it didn't work,
because swig append a 'c' to every Perl namespace e.g. SVN::_Corec instead
of SVN::_Core), so I gave up and used SWIG 1.3.19. I have added a hint about
swig version to the INSTALL document also. I case it is already fixed,
please remove this hint.

Gerald

P.S. I am not a native english speaker, so feel free to correct my english
in the INSTALL doc.
