Before I get a million replies to this commit: When anyone from re@ 
thinks it is worth the effort, I will add an -c option to the C 
pkg_version code ASAP. I believe backing this out won't be beneficial 
for -STABLE users, since they'll loose a lot of features (and speed). 
Has anyone on this thread *ever* used that option?
