Ok whatever.

And if you don't want to limit support to only 1.3.25 (I see the 1.2
release process is starting, I thought it was a little further away), you
can do something like this in the makefile. I would say 1.2 should support
1.3.24 and above, with something like the following in the Makefile

SWIGLIBDIR=`$(SWIG) -swiglib`

        $(SWIG) -python -external-runtime path/swigpyrun.h || \
        ( cat $(SWIGLIBDIR)/swigrun.swg > path/swigpyrun.h && \
          cat $(SWIGLIBDIR)/python/pyrun.swg >> path/swigpyrun.h && \
          cat $(SWIGLIBDIR)/runtime.swg >> path/swigpyrun.h; )

and then have the swigutil_py.c file include swigpyrun.h and have
the make dist depend on swigpyrun.h and all the _wrap.cxx files. Then you
just need to include swigpyrun.h and all the _wrap.cxx files in the
tarball. Notice then you don't need to have the swiglabels.swg file, since
the cats will only run with 1.3.24.
