Mostly done.  Also removed unused files/*

I need a little help here.  I don't really understand what this was 
doing in the
old swig package (before I commented it out), or if it is still needed?

#post-install: install-swig-doc
#       @mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(docdir)/$(GARNAME)
#       @cp -R $(WORKSRC)/Doc $(DESTDIR)$(docdir)/$(GARNAME)
#       @cp -R $(WORKSRC)/Examples $(DESTDIR)$(docdir)/$(GARNAME)
#       @$(MAKECOOKIE)
#       $(DONADA)

If its needed, could someone provide me with the basic code?

Related to this,  how do I find out what files are installed by a package?

There is no "man pkg-get"  and "pkg-get --help" is just about useless!
