Or, perhaps this may be btter:
major=.`expr $current - $age`
NetBSD versioning convention in the base system is:
major number: bump only if ABI is changed
minor number: bump everytime if a function is added
And this versuffix="$major.$age" exactly implements the convention in
the base system.
Is there any reason that it's better to choose $major.$age.$revision?
Compatibility with Linux?
Well, I'm not opposing to $major.$age.$revision. Just a question.
