What is the actual error you get with the patch? libsvn_swig_perl shouldn't
have a link step since its a static library. And all the perl modules that
depend on it already link to libswigpl.

We can revert the change, but I'd like to know how the static library
solution fails on cygwin.

The main motivation was to simplify the windows build. Putting the swig
runtime into the core modules allowed us to remove the clunky
gen_swig_runtime.py script and other apparatus for building the swig runtime
separately. Ben Reser also said it could help with multiple versions of perl
on the same machine (
http://www.contactor.se/~dast/svn/archive-2004-07/0451.shtml ).

r10233 moved the swig runtime into core modules on windows
r10236 got the same thing working on unix
r10374 reverted the effects of r10233 and r10236 on unix due to
incompatibilities
