AMANDA 3.3.2 and #undef bool

I upgraded a stable/8 i386 system and switched from lang/perl5.16 to lang/perl5.20 only to experience problems with swig generated code for AMANDA. I have confirmed this behaviour on stable/9 amd64 too.

#ifdef bool
#undef bool
#endif

Amanda/Application.c:1580: error: 'bool' undeclared (first use in this function)
