Looking for the correct way to change the
ffmpeg version string from something like this:

     ffmpeg version N-37183-g92115bb ...

to something like this:

     ffmpeg version 9.0.1+ (N-37183-g92115bb) ...

Trying various combos of changing the files
VERSION and REVISION fail to produce consistent
versioning between fresh builds and rebuilds.

Someone let me know the "correct way" to set
the version string embedded in the ffmpeg binary.
