I suppose I am a bit lost here. You gave instructions to someone that
require the installation and use of the SWIG package. I am an Editor
that must install SWIG so that I can check out the accuracy of the
instructions and that the package builds as we say it will.

Exactly what do you mean when you say "So you still make use of the
separate SWIG package?" I'm not trying to me a smart-a$$, I just am a
bit confused with your message.
