Did you build SWIG yourself? Look at config.log and see if SWIG was
able to locate Perl successfully. It looks like you are running a
particularly ancient RedHat distro, which (if it is the one I am
thinking of) may have contained a pre-release version of 5.8.0. Perl
5.8.0 itself is ancient and contains numerous bugs which have been fixed
since it was released. You should really upgrade to 5.8.7 if possible;
you can use the $CONFIG{config_args} value to build a new version of
Perl using the same settings as the existing version.
