I decided not to do this.  It is simpler and easier to understand if
we simply always add the version number.

I looked at this some more.  The info can simply come from autoconf
itself.  Automake puts `$(AUTOCONF)' into the, and this is
computed in AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE.  So if we can get the autoconf version
at configure time we can easily handle this.
