Sure, no problem. What I meant was that Subversion appears to come 
pre-packaged with everything it needs to build and install the perl and 
python swig bindings. All I have been doing for a long time to build 
those is just add the appropriate commands to my build recipe, i.e.,

./configure ...
make swig-py
make swig-pl
make install
make install-swig-py
make install-swig-pl

It's been years since I've needed to install a separate SWIG package in 
order to use the bindings. Now, there could be something I'm missing by 
doing it this way, I haven't dug further to find out.

Hope that's clearer.


P.S. Here's the full recipe I've been using:
