Makes sense to me.  Right now there is a list someplace of all the
places that have to be edited to update the version number :-(.
If configure could help centralize/automate that, it'd be great.

I also concur that supporting non-numeric suffixes on the version
string would be a big improvement.

Yes, it seems like dead weight to me too.  I think that it
predates our use of configure, so at the time it might have
been necessary mechanism, but now...
