Fine with me if somebody else looks into creating the timestamp value in
version.h.  I can add a `time_t git_commitdate' value and restrict the
samba_version_string length to 32 byte.  I was trying to keep the
samba_version_string as long as possible since I know of vendor version
strings which are much longer than 31 chars (and also, FWIW, long than
35 chars).
