I know it is already answered, but I'd like to point out another issue,
and thanks Karl for this report.

If you really used Python 2.6 (not Python 2.7) and the confugure script
fails to find Python interpreter 2.7 or above by using build/find_python.sh,
'make swig-py' should stop with the message

    SWIG python disabled at configure time: check config.log for details

before compiling something, because we intended to prevent building
Python bindings with Python 2.6 and older.

(There exist a known issue that our build system cannot detect whether
we should re-generate SWIG Python bindings intermediate source files,
and this is the case regeneration is needed, as it is already answered.)

In this case it should also stop with the message:

    SWIG python disabled at configure time: py3c library not found

However, the 1.14.0 release tarball contains .swig_py_checked (not to be
intended, I beleive), which is created if 'make swig-py' is allowed
by the result of configure (by "._swig_py_checked" target in Makefile),
so it didn't stop as we expected.

The 1.14.0 release tarball contains also '.swig_pl_checked' and
'.swig_rb_checked' files. Should they omit from release tarball?

Also, should the configure script remove them?
