_Most_ C-bindings modules on CPAN are able to compile if the user has the
related library and headers installed. Of course, most of them are using
XS directly, not swig, which I believes adds a whole new painfgul layer of
dependencies to deal with, so this just may not be possible.

But I still don't see why I can only compile the Perl bindings from within
the core, and why this depends on doing 'make swig-pl-lib' (or whatever it
is) from the top level of the source. This is rather un-Perlish ;)
