How to solve this? Should the arguments to AM_INIT_VERSION be
 1. the expression that computes the version,
 2. a dependency?

An expression is most flexible and does not require use of a file which might cause the recursion issue with the version control system in the case where the project commits all files. Use of an expression requires that the maintainer carefully manage dependencies, but he has to do that anyway.

A file (maybe even with a standard name) might be easier for new users to understand.

Due to the flexibility, I am in favor of using an expression.
