Hi guys,

I'm just trying to install here on RHEL 3, and running into trouble
(with 0.1 and current git):

I'm using a current libsvm installation (2.85) built with the debian
Makefile patches, and (I believe) installed in the right places.

I'm afraid I'm not experienced with SWIG, and grepping around the
sources for 'verbosity' does not come up with anything helpful.  Sorry
if I am being dubm.

See you,
