Oh, I also meant to say in that last message that I don't think it really
matters where in the distribution the version identifier is placed.
Whether it is in a Makefile, or a version,h or version.txt, or even

will work out whatever is needed for their systems and add whatever mechanism
is needed to get the version info from wherever it is put by the tz project

something that was considered stable here.
