  Modified files:
  Rework the versioning information, hopefully for the last time.
   * There are now only two public version identifiers:  "number" is
     a single integer that combines Major/minor/release in a single
     value of the form Mmmmrrr.  This is easy to compare against for
     checking feature support.  "string" is a displayable text string
     of the form "libarchive".
   * The number is present both as a macro (version of the installed header)
     and a function (version of the shared library).  The string form
     is available only as a function.
   * Retain the older version definitions for now, but mark them all
     as deprecated, to disappear in libarchive 3.0 (whenever that happens).
   * Rework the various deprecation conditionals to use ARCHIVE_VERSION_NUMBER.
  An ancillary goal is to reduce the number of @...@ substitutions that
  are required.  Someday, I might even be able to avoid build-time
  processing of archive.h entirely.
