That works for me, though (while we're on the subject) I'd mildly
prefer to change the signature to "extern char const
version_etc_copyright[]" while we're at it, as I don't see much point
in having it be a variable pointer to variable data.  It's not
supposed to be translated.  (And I think it's unlikely that the
copyright owner will change during the execution of the program --
though I suppose we could make it an option if that problem comes
up. :-)
