How to build the Python module for v1.1.4?

I've built and installed Subversion v1.1.4 on a Red Hat 9 system. If
anybody noticed my last post, I could only get 'svn' working by
disabling shared libraries when compiling.

On to the next problem. I'm going thru the book and just got to using
'svnshell.py'. Thought I would try it only to find out that it can't
find the Python 'svn' module.

I find the INSTALL file in ./subversion/bindings/swig and it seems like
the swig modules for Python and Perl aren't built by default (which I
didn't see mentioned anywhere when I was first building Subversion).
Not a problem once I found this INSTALL file. The problem is now that
the Makefile targets the INSTALL file says to use ('swig-py' and
'install-swig-py') don't exist in the Makefile. The Perl and Java
targets exist, but not Python. Also, INSTALL mentions that if a
suitable swig is found (which it is, swig v1.3.24), then the normal
build should create libsvn_swig_{py,perl}.so which it doesn't. In
addition, most of the Perl tests fail (maybe that will give somebody a
clue to what's going on).

Any help is appreciated.
