Nice.  One thing, though: the final \n isn't needed, as it is tagged 
on in via_driver.c.  See also the other BUILDCOMMENT defines.

It would be nice if it were possible to break down VERSION into 
can become the only place where the version number is defined.  But 
in `info cpp` I can't find anything that looks like string 

Hmm, the https://www.openchrome.org/trac/report link that is given 
in configure.ac isn't working.  Should https be working on the 
openchrome server?

Anyway, it's probably better to link to report/1, so the prospective 
error reporter at once gets to see which bugs have already been 
reported and doesn't have to go looking for this list first.
