OK. I don't plan to pursue becoming the package maintainer for Debian
(nor RPM based distros, for that matter), but if my trees are helpful to
the maintainers, then great.

The downloaded tarball, if built with "make tarball", would include
version-stamp, which the top-level Makefile includes and which contains
"VERSION ?= <version string>". So it would know its correct version, and
that version can _still_ be overridden by invoking "make
