    GHC versions are now of the form AA.BB.C, where AA is the major
    version, BB is the minor version, and C is the patchlevel.
    
    Part of this commit accidentally ended up in an earlier commit to
    fptools/ghc/mk/version.mk, which contains some comments on the version
    rationale.  Excerpt:
    
    # ProjectVersionInt does *not* contain the patchlevel (rationale: this
    # figure is used for conditional compilations, and library interfaces
    # etc. are not supposed to change between patchlevels).
    
    i.e. a patchlevel is for bugfixes only, no new features or
    interface-changing changes.  Unfortunately, we made this mistake in
    4.04pl1, and won't be making it again.
