Any chance for 6.4?

> Any chance for 6.4?
No, unfortunately. It is currently scheduled for 6.5 but I cannot 100% confirm it.
If you want to increase the priority of the SWIG rebase in RHEL-6, please contact Red Hat Product Support ( access.redhat.com ) - this can increase the chances for next minor release (as Adam said, no chance for 6.4, but without escalation support, I don't see chances for 6.5 update high).

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
A more recent version of swig, 2.0.10, is available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
This Bugzilla has been reviewed by Red Hat and is not planned on being addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and therefore will be closed.
