The user-visible part is "d" (above) and it is done in two gp/gp.c
chunks.  They look missing.

The purpose of the code is to print the version in readline.h
(calculated at compile time), and the version in
readline.a/ ("calculated" at link or run time
correspondingly).  This makes it much easier to spot discrepancies/problems.
