Since the cvs repository is now the "truth copy" of the code, the
standalone tarballs could be generated by a build process in
src/interfaces/odbc which explicitly finds and copies the current pgsql
version info. Once the tarball is built, then the version info travels
with the tarball. I'm not sure what the state of the standalone build is
at the moment; it used to work but I vaguely recall some discussion that
it was evil...
