Oh dear. Apparently MIME inline attachments + gmane + ezmlm isn't a
good combination. There was an explanation ;)
In short, the grep + cut doesn't quite work like it used to because
there is a trailing period. The case glob (which is not a POSIX regex
under the Bourne shell, right?) matches "x2.61." as well as "x2.60",
which is what we want.
Either way the whole thing isn't a robust check, autoconf's manual
doesn't make any claims to insert that particular string.
