The recent Debian stable release only has swig 3.

swig.m4 simply looks for swig in PATH, so I assume that swig on your
system is swig 2. Your system has been setup to give priority to swig
2 when both are installed.

I don't agree. Your system is setup to "prefer" swig 2, we should
respect that preference until we can identify failures caused by swig 2.

The generated files in the release tarball are different, I think we
should use a swig 3 release there unless we can identfy failures caused
by swig 3.
