I am afraid I have no answers to your end problem, but the above is a crude
hack designed for swig 1.3.22. When using swig 1.3.21, you should simply use
"make runtime && make install-runtime".

You might be able to dodge your end problem by simply upgrading to swig
1.3.24 (which eliminates the need for libswigpy entirely) and subversion
1.1.4 (which adds support for swig 1.3.24).
