  That file is updated from git describe when you run autogen.sh, unless
you don't have the .git dir. In that case (building from a tarball without
.git) the pre-generated 'version' script is used by autogen.sh.

  From your previous messages is not clear to me which case you were,
probably somewhere in between, hence the version divergences.
