If the swig stuff was by default auto-regenerated at building time we could have
some problems from time to time in Debian/Ubuntu, due to recurrent
problems in moving from one distributed swig version to another. We found 
problems in 1.3.38 and possibly all previously used versions after lenny release, for
instance (on the python side). At the same time, sometimes regenerating is required, but
that's generally something which is better left to builders and
packagers IMHO.
