Try this (showing my answers):

   $ swig -swiglib

   $ ls /usr/local/lib/swig1.3
   Makefile.pl perlmain.i std_common.i std_string.i
   noembed.h perlrun.swg std_map.i std_vector.i
   perl5.swg precommon.swg std_pair.i typemaps.i

If you don't have those files, there may be another package you need to load.
You should also see if there is a 5.8.3 update; there are some important fixes
that went in after 5.8.2.

As far as the _Client.so file is concerned, you need to do a 'make clean'
followed by a rerunning of the Makefile.PL, then 'make' in order to see all of
the "interesting" messages:

   $ env APR_CONFIG=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apr-config perl Makefile.PL
   Writing Makefile for SVN::_Core
   Writing Makefile.client for SVN::_Client
   Writing Makefile.delta for SVN::_Delta
   Writing Makefile.fs for SVN::_Fs
   Writing Makefile.ra for SVN::_Ra
   Writing Makefile.repos for SVN::_Repos
   Writing Makefile.wc for SVN::_Wc

   $ make
   swig -c -nopm -perl -I.. -I../../../include -I/usr/local/apache2/include
-module SVN::_Client -o svn_client.c ../svn_client.i
   gcc -c -I/usr/local/apache2/include -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE
-DTHREADS_HAVE_PIDS -DDEBUGGING -fno-strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include
-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE -I.. -I../../../include -g
-g -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -march=i586 -mcpu=pentiumpro -DVERSION=\"\"
-DXS_VERSION=\"\" -fpic "-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.3/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE"
   Running Mkbootstrap for SVN::_Client ()

etc. I suspect you are missing the SWIG support for Perl and you should see
multiple warnings/errors in the log file.
