Any idea why it’s using a version of SWIG (1.3.36) from over a year ago (June 2008)? Annoyingly, something I need to run requires SWIG 1.3.37 (Jan 2009). The newest SWIG is 1.3.40 (Aug 2009).

You can suggest a package update via bugzilla.
Not sure whether it’s too late to get it included in openSUSE 11.2,
11.2 is frozen already, as is Factory until 11.2 release. Version not found in the repos either.
Go to Simplified Wrapper and Interface Generator
Go to ‘Download’
Download the swig-VERSION.tar.gz
tar -xvf swig-VERSION.tar.gz
su -c ‘zypper rm swig’ (enter rootpassword)
su -c ‘make install’ (enter rootpassword)
I don’t know which app you’re dealing with but this downloads latest swig source code, extracts it, configures it, compiles it and installs it. Inbetween installed swig is uninstalled. Did it just now. Can’t test but all compiled well.
