To me, it just seems that it will more often be forgotten then putting it
into a VERSION text file ... but it isn't something that I'm going to turn
blue in face over ... since its as 'clean' as above, leave it ... 

One thought, and with all your recent changes you may have done this, but
is there any way of putting some sort of text file as part of the install
procedure that "stores" the ./configure command line?  Something that, if
I were to remove all sources but decide later that I want to add, let's
say, multi-byte, I could do 'cat ~pgsql/CONFIGURE' to find out how the
system is already compiled?
