Could you extract the package version number and place it in the
build script as a variable ie: PKG_VERSION=1.2.3 . I could extract the
value and use it when the makefile is created for version comparison.
When the makefile is run it could
It is not necessary to utilize the version number today but it would
be nice for the future..
