But after a second thought, this has a flaw as well, that is if people dont
run configure after svn up they would have mismatching versions which is
pretty bad :(
Anyway IMO the original code was fine as it was, theres no real need for
tricky hacks ...
If someone changes one of the versions and forgets the other (in the line below)
that is immedeatly spot on svn log as both lines are after each other.
