Build problems under Linux - swig_runtime.h error

After upgrading to the latest Mandriva Linux I can no longer compile
Matplotlib. The following error occurs:

···

================
In file included from src/backend_agg.cpp:37:
src/swig_runtime.h: In function 'void SWIG_Python_AddErrorMsg(const
char*)':
src/swig_runtime.h:859: error: format not a string literal and no
format arguments
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

This happens with all of 0.98.5.2, 0.98.5.3 and svn versions of
matplotlib.

That file is a fossil, along with agg.cxx. Comment out its inclusion in backend_agg.cpp, and I think everything will build. I will make the changes in svn.
