The line in FindSwig.mk (part of the cmake package, not swig package)
find_program(SWIG_EXECUTABLE NAMES swig2.0 swig)
This will look in PATH for
* an executable called "swig2.0"
* if it is not found, an executable called "swig"
so if there is a "swig2.0" in /usr/bin it will be used instead of the
one called "swig" in $(HOST_DIR)/usr/bin even if the PATH order says
currently, host-swig only installs $(HOST_DIR)/usr/bin/swig and the
debian package on my host only installs /usr/bin/swig2.0 thus the
(Note that the separate bump of cmake changes the cmake line above to
dealwith swig3.0 that has been updated since, but using
$(MAJOR_VERSION) deals with it properly)
