Actually, it shouldn't really matter.  I was thinking at first that,
aesthetically, it might be more pleasing to generate a file with the
version info and then use it in conjunction with the other source file
to generate config.h with the perl script, but, pratically and upon
further consideration, I think it probably makes more sense to leave
the config.h.in ->config.h step where it is since that step can run
without Perl and running the Perl script will need to be disabled
unless --enable-maintainer-mode.
