Sure, I also could run

$ pacman -Q gtk2 claws-mail
gtk2 2.24.25-1
claws-mail 3.11.0-2


but were can I set the X-Mailer info used by Claws to use a script ;).

I guess the correct answer already was given, it's a build option and
JFTR the maintainer of the distro I'm using isn't interested in
promotion for this distro. Assumed it would be important, then I could
compile myself, but since it's not important, just a minor cosmetic
issue, I'll live with that "cosmetic issue".
