Looks like introduction of VERSION into config.in might warrant a
suitable change in admin/admin.el, and perhaps also in src/emacs.c.
Until now, VERSION for etags.c etc. was determined by the `version'
Make variable in lib-src/Makefile.in, which was set by the configure
script by editing emacs.c with Sed.  I see a warning in the current
configure script about mismatch between `version' gleaned from emacs.c
and VERSION set by the configure script itself, but perhaps we should
simply use VERSION set by configure.

For now, I added VERSION to nt/config.nt, but ifdef'ed it away,
pending the decision regarding use of VERSION in config.h.
