theres a commit in autotools-WIP that adds the git branch to the version
number. this is something to play with...

the mechanism is quite simple: configure checks whether git is available
and .git is a directory, then pastes the branch name into the constant
GIT_BRANCH. anything else (commit id, description or even
manual-override) should be trivial to add.

i see. i have my gnucap instances sorted by prefix and select with
$PATH. that way confusion is impossible.
