But there is no need to set the version during the run of configure;
it is known when Autoconf runs.  Actually, Autoconf requires that the
version is a literal, not shell variable.

Could you replace your version.sh with version.m4, which would
m4_define([gettext_version], [1.2.3])

Then you would have:
AC_INIT([GNU gettext], gettext_version, address@hidden)

Have a nice day,
