You're the man.

I downloaded the latest snapshot and tried to compile it, the library
and the perl module and found the problem.  It's the perl module.
When I try 'make test' in /perl then I get what's pasted below.
I've tried installing libswish-e in /usr/local/lib and /usr/lib with
the same results.

Which brings me back to the original problem that prompted me to try a
new version, but I'll send that in a separate email.
