I agree that it is not the same as the rest of the book, but the problem I
faced was that usually, commands that are optional are inside <command> tags,
but "make swig-py..." is a two-line command, which does not fit well inside
<command> tags. OTOH, if those commands are put inside <screen><userinput>
tags, it is not consistent either, as it treats them as recommended (or
required) commands, so SWIG should be a recommended dep.
It's not that I do not want to change, just that I have not found a
solution... But since I am very new to the book editing and Docbook, I may
have missed something obvious.
So, go ahead.
