These warnings look like they were caused by a SWIG bug. The
SWIG_GetModule macro is defined as follows by SWIG 1.3.25 on my
machine:
   #define SWIG_GetModule(clientdata) SWIG_Python_GetModule()

Later in the file, SWIG uses the SWIG_GetModule macro as a zero-argument macro:
  swig_module_info *module = SWIG_GetModule();

GCC parses the above as follows:
  swig_module_info *module = SWIG_Python_GetModule();

Can Microsoft Visual C++ handle the above code? You said that Visual
C++ reports warnings; does the code still work? If not, I can modify
our runtime generator to work around this SWIG bug.

It looks like SWIG can't handle the __int64 type. Perhaps we can fool
SWIG by defining __int64 to "long long".

Try this patch:

[[[

subversion/bindings/swig/proxy/apr_h.swg:
  Workaround SWIG bug which means that SWIG cannot parse "__int64",
  by defining "__int64" to be "long long".

]]]

Cheers,

David
