what I have read on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWIG), SWIG
is released under a BSD type license. Could that not be a problem for
GRASS at least for distribution of both software in one package?

I tryed to compile and use the grass.pm module, without success:

./configure  --with-cxx --with-nls --with-freetype --enable-largefile --with-tcltk-includes=/usr/include/tcl8.3 --with-postgres-includes=/usr/include/postgresql/ --with-freetype-includes=/usr/include/freetype2/ --with-fftw --with-nls --with-readline --with-sqlite

cd swig/perl
perl Makefile.PL

MakeMaker (v6.17)
Writing Makefile for R_slope_aspect::r_slope_aspect
Writing Makefile for R_slope_aspect
Writing Makefile for Grass

r_slope_aspect.c:49: error: 'elev_cell' undeclared (first use in this function)

I suppose, this has something to do with last changes in grass header
