We've been here before:


The quick fix is to just touch the file into existence - it was empty in
SWIG's CVS at the time (more recent versions have some size_t stuff in).

Should xapian-bindings perhaps require SWIG 1.3.20?  Currently we check
for at least 1.3.14, but I'm not confident that is good enough anyway -
I'm using 1.3.19 with std_common.i touched into existence.
