I'm not talking about generating the version string into tramp.el.
IIUC, you manually write the version string only in configure.ac. (did I understand this correctly?)
What I'm saying is: could you write the version string only in tramp.el, instead of in configure.ac?
You could easily retrieve the version during ./configure with a simple (grep | sed) or with lm-version (in elisp).
This way tramp.el would still be static (no need for tramp.el.in).
