Aside: Why is this important? mkversion is a one-off utility program
used during the build process, and shouldn't ever be called with
incorrect arguments, as no human ever calls it, only the Makefile.
The job done by mkversion was originally done by a sequence of awk
but as awk is not commonly available on windows systems, we wrote a
quick-and-dirty C program to do the job instead.
