There would be little harm in keeping the version in the repository's
Makefile as well.  The "version" target seems to ignore the VERSION=
setting anyways.  It is common for projects to keep the version being
worked on somewhere in the project files.  Logistically, the extra burden
is just to update the value right after the release is tagged.  This can be
part of an automated release procedure.
