There is code (called yearweek) in src/interp/util.lisp.pamphlet
that "timestamps" Axiom during the build process. The format of
Axiom's version number (badly) documented in the file. It is also
documented in src/interp/Makefile.pamphlet. It is a variable of
the form:

  YYYYMMDDxxx where YYYY is the year, MM is the month, DD is the day
  and xxx is a unique number identifying a build.

Every interpsys image should have a *yearweek* variable, thus:

> )lisp *yearweek*

but I see it is broken (sigh). It gets set automatically at system 
build time, uniquely identifying the build.

I'll fix this.
