r8368 and SWIG version requirements.

I'm going to veto r8368 to force us to discuss the version requirements
of SWIG.

Last night I worked with David to figure out some perl bindings issues
he had on RedHat. He was having trouble getting SWIG 1.3.16 to build
with perl binding support. It works fine for him with 1.3.19. But I'm
not convinced we really require 1.3.19.

Right now the configure script is accepting 1.3.16, 1.3.17 and 1.3.19.
There's a change pending to accept 1.3.20 and 1.3.21. The configure
script however, recommends 1.3.19 and so does our documentation.

So if we really require 1.3.19 then we need to make the configure
scripts say that. In that case I consider r8368 incomplete.

If 1.3.19 is not required than r8368 is just wrong.

I'll try to find some time tonight or tomorrow to play with 1.3.16 and
see if we really work with it or not.

If we really need 1.3.19 then I'll merge r8368 into the #1690 issue and
update the patch to accept only 1.3.19. And remove my veto.
