Building locally, I found that SWIG fails to build with this new Perl
release due to the removal of the current directory from @INC. This
change is mentioned in the Perl release notes:

"We removed the current directory from @INC

We consider this a security change, and although it might cause
discomfort to some users, we had to do it. Both Perl 5 Porters and the
Toolchain Gang put effort into easing the transition to a dot-less

If you want to load a module from the current directory, you can still
do this in one the following ways:


# Use the environment variable


It doesn't look like this has been addressed by the SWIG maintainers

We should set this PERL_USE_UNSAFE_INC variable in the SWIG package
definition, right? Probably we will need to set it in several other
packages as well.
