If I understand what the README is saying, pgmsgevent.mc is the source
file (the "preferred form for modification"), and MSG00001.bin is just
prebuilt output from it.  It's unpleasant that it's not text, but I
don't see that this is fundamentally different from providing configure
along with configure.in.
