Ok, so maybe that was why when I ran 'svn up' I didn't get it back as I
thought I would (bapt's removal of it being thee reason). That makes sense
then.

I really didn't need the swig13 port. The reason I wound up removing the
directory was due to complaints from synth about it, and in the process of
checking into that I deleted it.  :(

Thanks,
Bob
