It makes sense.  In that particular case though, after a bit of
reading and quite some testing, the resulting Cephes.pm
regenerated by swig fails the build time testing.  I don't
exclude this is caused by a mishandling of mine with swig.
Here is the kind of command I was considering in d/rules:

	swig -perl5 -module Math::Cephes -I$(CURDIR)libmd/ \
		-o $(CURDIR)/lib/Math/Cephes.pm Cephes.i

But I'm afraid to suspect manual modifications in Cephes.pm.
Maybe I'll leave these files as such for the moment.

Anyway, thanks for the pointer!
I believe I learned something useful with swig.

Kind Regards,
