Considering how many problems gpsd users have with mixed versions I
do not consider it perfectly normal.

But I do agree the format of the message is sub-optimal.  Maybe
a popup or some such.

Works for me:

    # ./ubxtool -V
    ubxtool: Version 3.18

Tested on Python 2.7 and 3.6.

Something seriously different with your Python and the way it
imports things.  I assume this is another macOS defect?

3.18 is locked in.  But not unusual for a release to flush out bugs
right away.  We can do a quick 3.19 if required.
