build: set version based on git tag or specific
This patch brings version and release number generated at build time using git tags or fixed content from VERSION file. With git tag, version/release number are got from output of 'git describe --tags --match "v[0-9]*"' command. This behavior can be overriden by having VERSION file with fixed version/release. The VERSION file should have text describing version and release for example something like 'v3.4.0-1' For testing this patch, its required to remove autom4te.cache directory to avoid seeing previously set version.
