Sorry, but only was able to test this now.
I rebuilt the file with swig-1.3.29 (bleeding edge) and it works.
For the alice services I had the swig file built as part of the complete build
(i.e. configure would look for swig and test whether the version was ok). I
could do this for this build too:
1. Look whether swig exists and if version is ok
2. If yes: rebuild swig file
if no: use the one from the distribution
I'll send you the readline patch as soon as I've tested it on a few systems
(there seems to be some misconfiguration on the shire nodes).
