That's a different issue. The Subversion Makefile has never been retrofitted to
make the Perl bindings in a single pass (like the Python bindings). One reason
for this is that the Perlish way is two steps (perl Makefile.PL; make) to begin
with. The other reason is that swig-pl-lib is compiled/linked using the
defaults (compiler and linker, e.g. -I) for the Subversion library, but the Perl
XS model requires building that portion using the defaults for the installed
Perl instance.
