if SWISHBIN were used to determine the include and lib paths as well 
(assuming that 'make install' but them in directories relative to bin/ 
), we wouldn't need a swish-config, yes?

that is, if the Makefile.PL took SWISHBIN and extrapolated the base path 
and added 'include' and 'lib' appropriately, that would achieve the same 
thing?

or I am overlooking something obvious?
