That should work.
Have you updated recently?
There were missing dependencies until a week or so ago
that would make it so a new version string did not propagate
through the code.

Here's how I've just tested it:

  $ build-aux/git-version-gen . .version; echo
  $ cd /tmp
  $ $OLDPWD/build-aux/git-version-gen . .version; echo

But before doing that, be sure to get the latest, since
git-version-gen's API changed recently, too.
