The interesting wrinkle here is that, SWIG files which can be shipped in
a tarball, or generated during the build, can be in the srcdir OR the
blddir, not always one or the other.

If we could use $<, we wouldn't have to care about generating different
build-outputs.mk files in different situations, and we could just let
make choose the appropriate path automatically.
