I haven't tried with recent versions of SWIG anymore. The most recent
I tried (I think) is 1.3.26 or .27. With those versions: no, no joy.

Sure, but with what information you provided me now, I can't tell you
much. I have no idea what problems you are having.

Any patches you can provide to make it work are most welcome ofcourse!
There are some restrictions to what you can do in the patches: they'll
have to be backward compatible with all currently supported versions,
unless we collectively decide we'll drop support for specific
versions. We can decide so after discussion on
dev@subversion.tigris.org.

Speaking of dev@, I CC-ed the list in my response: Though I'm one of
the very few who ever tried building the bindings on Windows, there's
a lot of knowledge on the list; people able (and willing!) to help out
on any number of subjects. I read the list too and will jump in
whenever I'm able.

Thank *you* for your time and effort!

bye,

Erik.
