Xihpos 3.1.4 does not seem to have any strict dependencies on SWORD
1.6.2. As such you should NOT expect it to be compiled against
anything in particular, whatever happens to be in the distro. Since
1.6.2 is not out yet, Xiphos 3.1.4 is already in some distros compiled
against SWORD 1.6.1. If there was some reason not to do this there
should have been an explicit dependence and the release should have
held off until the dependency is released.

Anybody packaging for a distro should be aware that when the next
version of sword comes out, it would be worth bumping the distro
release/build number on Xiphos so it get's built against the latest
