The problem is that Swig has become a build-time dependency now. We
don't configure the Swig bindings unless Swig is installed, even if the
binding sources are already generated — as they are in the release tarballs.

The solution is to install Swig and tell configure about it:

    $ sudo pkg install swig30
    $ ./configure --with-swig=/usr/local/bin/swig30 ...

This will not cause the Swig sources to be regenerated, but will perform
the proper configuration to make them compile correctly.

I consider this to be a bug in our build scripts, FWIW.
