Did you think of packaging git_version.h when doing 'make dist'?

Yes, but we will want to distinguish

a) a build directly from a git worktree of commit 12345678
b) a build from a dist tarball generated from commit 12345678

In case a), we can programmatically determine whether the local source
contains changes in addition to 12345678 and note them.

In case b), we have no way of finding out whether/what has changed
locally, so we need to note that in the message somehow.

I do have code for b), but it is too ugly, too fragile and too large to
commit just yet.
