[gpm] problems with git and AC_PACKAGE_VERSION

current git fails to run autotools.  this is because .gitversion.m4 defines 
AC_PACKAGE_VERSION to a date stamp, but the configure.ac does 
AC_SUBST(AC_PACKAGE_VERSION).  since the former did a define() instead of 
declaring it a shell variable, it becomes:
AC_SUBST(1.20.5 2008....)
which obviously fails

i dont know what the intention was here, so i'm not going to try and fix it.  
either the AC_SUBST() needs to go in configure.ac or the Makefile.in that 
creates .gitversion.m4 needs to be changed to declare it a shell variable.
