# Determine the version string to build into a binary.
# When building in the git repository, we can use the output
# of "git describe" which gives an unequivocal answer.
# Failing that, we use the contents of the VERSION file
# which has a set of references substituted into it by git.
# If we can find one which matches $v[0-9].* then we assume it's
# a version-number tag, else we just use the whole string.
# If there is more than one v[0-9].* tag, sort them and use the
# first. This favours, eg v2.63 over 2.63rc6.
