Hmmm... Well, one thing for sure is that "releases" come with
configure, whereas betas and alphas don't. This implies something
in the buildconf process. The way PHP does it, IIRC, is to create
a sep file called php_version.h at ./buildconf (set in
time, which is then used as the "version" string. Still, that doesn't
close the loop...
