In the perl team we are not very consistent; there are packages where
we regenerate them (or have them regenerated by removing the shipped
results) and others where we don't because we missed them or because
it's too painful etc.

% grep swig */debian/rules
libdevice-cdio-perl/debian/rules:	# mv shipped .pm files away to ensure that the swig-generated ones
libmath-gsl-perl/debian/rules:	# .c files in xs/ are rebuilt from swig input files

% grep swig */debian/control
libdevice-cdio-perl/debian/control:               swig
libmath-gsl-perl/debian/control:               swig
libtext-bidi-perl/debian/control:               swig
