I'm going to spend some time trying to get the perl building stuff dealt
with. It looks like the INSTALL needs to be reworked. I'll take your
comments and patch into consideration.

I'm looking into this. I need to get this fixed because Mandrake cooker
had 1.3.20 in it (which happened to be sadly broken, so I upgraded it to
1.3.21 and fixed the package today).

Hopefully I can have these issues worked out before 0.37.0. How we're
deciding what SWIG versions are good needs to change. If we're going to
release rarely then it needs to not require modifying the configure
script everytime a new version of SWIG comes out.
