It's not clear for me what does this silence mean. About year ago I've
reported a bug. Now I provide a solution, patch that helps to detect
emacs version without running 'pkg_info -e <emacs>' by introducing
<emacses>/Makefile.ver files and changing mk/ appropriately.

I'd like to see PR/37146 fixed and my solution is easy.  Patch is also
trivial, several Makefile.ver appeared and mk/ changed

So, what's the problem? :-( Is patch bad? Tell why.

P.S.  Of course, VARIANTS part should be removed from it, it appeared
there by my mistake.

Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
