I patched that line to: if LooseVersion(distutils.__version__) >= LooseVersion("2.4”): swig_opt = '--swig-opts=-c++'

Now I get this error: 

:debug:build Executing command line:  cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_marbre_ports_python_py-swiginac/py27-swiginac/work/swiginac-" && /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python2.7 setup.py --no-user-cfg build 
:info:build Traceback (most recent call last):
:info:build   File "setup.py", line 48, in <module>
:info:build     if LooseVersion(distutils.__version__) >= LooseVersion("2.4"): swig_opt = '--swig-opts=-c++'
:info:build NameError: name 'LooseVersion' is not defined

Also, at the very top of setup.py there is: #!/usr/bin/env python

Should the be changed to ${prefix}/bin or something else?
