Hi Howard,

You haven't mentioned which mapscript version.  I am assuming
mapscript from 3.6.5.  I had success building the 3.6 mapscript
with SWIG 1.3.11 and gcc 2.95.

I am currently compiling the development (3.7) mapscript with
SWIG 1.3.17 and gcc 3.2.  I subscribe to the SWIG list and read
that SWIG 1.3.18 had problems and have been waiting to see if
they are fixed in SWIG 1.3.19 before I upgrade.
