Build perl (ruby, pyhon, javahl) bindings with SYSTEM (installed) SVN libraries?

Hello, Subversion.

  It is possible to build any bindings with INSTALLED subversion
libraries, without rebuilding them from source tree?
  I.e. I have subversion without bindings already installed (on
UNIX-like system), with all headers, etc. And I want to ADD bindings
to this installation. If I unpack & configure sources and then run:

% make swig-pl

 It will build all client libraries again, which is not error-safe
(for example, different options could be passed for system libraries
and freshly built ones).

 This feature, to build ONLY bindings with pre-installed subversion
libraries and headers is VERY useful for package systems: it allows to
easily create `main' subversion package and binding packages (vvery
small and compact), which depends on `main' one. Now we (FreeBSD in my
case) need to create four full-size packages with different options.
It is ugly solution :(
