To be fair: this syntax is depreciated since Autoconf 2.50.
The current `official' syntax is the following:

AC_INIT(libXrc, 0.1, address@hidden)

Autoconf needs these informations to generate propers banners in
configure/config.status, autotest test-suites etc.

Yes, there is some duplication here.  That's why Automake is
droping its arguments and instead try to get these pieces of
information from Autoconf.
