Using sed means that it can't be used for the Windows build, i.e. it
would then have to be handled like `configure' and a few other generated
files which are kept in Bzr.

It's not the end of the world, but it's not ideal.  This said, since
globals.h is already under Bzr, it's no worse than what we already have,
so feel free to install a patch that adds a Makefile entry to regenerate
globals.h and install the corresponding newly generated globals.h.

It might be a better solution, indeed, which should work for Windows and
MS-DOS as well.

Note that this auto-generation of globals.h might trigger some related
neurons and bring up related desires.  E.g. auto-generate the `defsubr'
calls and all the intern_c_string+staticpro for Q<foo> vars ;-)
