Follow-up Comment #1, patch #3087 (project freeciv):

Are you aware of the Debian version number comparison algorithm and its
implementations? Some words here
<http://codingcastles.blogspot.com/2009/05/comparing-version-numbers.html>
(you can play with it via "dpkg --compare-versions" on a Debian/Ubuntu
system).

I don't think it would work for Freeciv version numbers as they stand, and I
don't know whether there's a portable C library, so I suspect we can't use it.
I mention it as the 800-pound gorilla in the room of total orders on version
strings.
