I'm trying to compile the last snapshot of gforth (0.7.9_20180517) on my equipment (Linux Mint, 64 bits).
All seems to go well until at one point the configure script complains that I don't have a forth-enabled swig. So I downloaded the current version of swig (3.0.12) and installed it. I could not find any forth related option in swig but installed it anyway.
However gforth configure keeps complaining.
