Comment #5 on issue 3473 by address@hidden: Patch: Rewrite STEPMAKE_GET_VERSION.

Two remarks.

. `eval' can indeed be evil. It took me ages to find out that the version data itself can influence the result. `guile --version' shows

  Guile 1.8.8

and both the old code and my first try for a patch couldn't properly handle the
single backtick in front of the word COPYING.

. The recent patchset reduces the size of the configure script by almost 7%. Not that this is of any real significance today, but I consider it more elegant to have a smaller configure script :-)
