Of course you don't need to build the perl module to use swish.
Hum, I'm having ok results.
I just downloaded the current tarball and built swish-e and the perl module
on the following platforms without any problems:
Distribution gcc perl kernel (not that it matters)
SuSE 6.3 2.95.3 5.6.0 2.2.12
Debian Sid 2.95.4 5.6.1 2.4.14
Linux 2.7.2 5.6.1 2.2.20
FreeBSD 2.95.3 5.005_03 4.5-STABLE
SunOS 5.6 2.95.1 5.005_03 sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise
This fails with `PL_sv_undef' undeclared, which is due to the
old version of perl.
Linux 2.7.2 5.004_1 2.2.20
Now, your session:

You don't need to be root to build, and it's probably better not to be root.
You are linking with an old libswish-e.a file.

Try deleting that. Then it should use the library in ../src, which you
Mine says this:
'-lswish-e' found at
My Makefile.PL says:
LIBS => [q[-L../src -lswish-e -lm -lxml2], q[-lswish-e -lm -lxml2]]
so, I think, -L../src says to look in ../src first.
LIBS => [q[-L/usr/lib -lswish-e -lm -lxml2], q[-L/usr/lib -lswish-e -lm
Which doesn't make sense. How did that get changed? Take a look at
Makefile.PL and see what that line says.
