Not sure what year models in question here but other Suzukis that use these french engines do have the standard french bolt patterns and can use same engines from other makes.
That is more or less the point of using the standard french engines, if they use it as is then the price of them is cheaper for suzuki.

edit: I would try to use the same engine code and year of manufacture to make sure there is less other problems with the fit though.

hi
   sorry yes should have said the year.  think it was an 04 plate,  its the common rail hdi peugeot  but the last thing i want to do is use another one  its the third  one ive had fail. AA said it was the immboliser  refused to look at it and transported me 250 miles back home instead,   i have a perfectly good peugeot 306 diesel engine that requires 1 wire to make the injector pump work and no immboliser    yippee
sure i can make some sort of toy out of this

hi Dirtbird

in which chassis ?   but the answer is it fits in both the jimny and vitara easily with no chassis mods,  i still have a vitara with a factory fitted diesel engine  the XUD  as fitted to  205's 305' 405' etc   it was suzukis answer to a diesel vitara,  when it moved onto the grand vitara they used the mazda diesel the RF engine for a while  then they went back to the pug  common rail diesel engine engine.   and i used to have a diesel jimny with the xud engine which they fit as standard is some markets,  so its an easy fit

to answer my own question   yes you can take a gearbox off a hdi engine in a vitara and fit it to the earlier xud engine from the 306 etc
opens up a few possibilities me think
