Once it's been successfully rebuilt for F14, an update needs to be filed to get the rebuild into F14:
Please add this bug to the update, to make it easy to track what's been done, and what's left to do.
You can see the current failure in:
SWIG version >= 1.3 is required. You have 2.0.0. You should look at http://www.swig.org
And therefore can't build the python extension.

This fixes the rebuild
Patch updates the swig version that's needed to build. However, I can't test this so I don't know if this is okay or not.
Also, I noted that the second patch in the current srpm is very fragile. You shouldn't be patching configure after running autoreconf. Changes in autoreconf could cause the patch to fail to apply. Change this to patch configure.ac before running autoreconf.
And here's the scratch build with the patch added.
I fixed this package. Basically I did the same thing via sed. Sorry for skipping your work :(
