Our .tar.bz2 and .tar.gz packages contain source files generated by
Swig. A packager /can/ decide to regenerate them; I don't know why they
would want to, but they can.

If I understand your patch correctly, those symbolic links would be
created in the build directory, not the source directory? In any case,
if you commit that patch, you'll also have to fix the "clean-swig-py"
target to remove the symlinks.
