We only use gfx ourselves and linking SWF against PIL (_imaging.so)
has turned out problematic on OSX. By default the PIL .so libraries
are created as bundles on OSX which cannot be linked against.
I was able to manually hack PIL so that the libs are built using
-dynamiclib instead of -bundle which allowed the linking but in our
case it is far easier to just disable SWF alltogether. Also, I recall
hearing that you were thinking about deprecating the SWF module.. is
