[BUILD] centralize version and date into one file for each
The version does not appear anymore in the Makefiles nor in the include files. It was a nightmare to maintain. Now there is a VERSION file which contains the major version, a VERDATE file which contains the date for this version and a SUBVERS file which may contain a sub-version. A "make version" target has been added to all makefiles to check the version. The GNU Makefile also has an update-version target to update those files. This should never be used. It is still possible to override those values by specifying them in the equivalent make variables. By default, the GNU makefile tries to detect a GIT repository and always uses the version and date from the current repository. This can be disabled by setting IGNOREGIT to a non-void value.
