      Description

      The present convention for packaging third-party libraries is that the library version must be redundantly stated both in autobuild.xml and in build-cmd.sh. Put differently, every time we update any third-party library, we must remember to manually update both version numbers.

      autobuild should be able to obtain the package version number by some other means than editing it into autobuild.xml. Ideally, merely updating the package source should suffice to update the package version number in all relevant places.
