I should also note here that as I have said before, the output files from
SWIG are portable to almost any architecture and only need to be generated
once. Thus, if you have SWIG installed say on linux, you can run it to
generate the _wrap files and those exact wrap files can be used on Sun,
Windows, Linux, MacOS, whatever. So you could even get someone to email
you the files that SWIG creates, and you wouldn't even need SWIG installed
to compile the bindings on windows.

The right way to take care of this problem is to have the SWIG generated
files present directly inside the released subversion tarballs, then SWIG
does not need to be installed to build a tarball. Sadly, this feature will
not even be in the 1.2 release, but hopefully future releases will have it.

Note that all I've said is only true for SWIG since version 1.3.23... but
subversion is using 1.3.24 so shouldn't matter.
