Daisuke is right about each language binding having different preferred 
way. Even if there was a single best way, the bindings are independent 
projects and nobody can force the maintainers to use this or that system.

The goal is to make 0mq core make it easy for each binding to use its 
preferred way.

What we have so far is version retrieval via pkgconfig and via a 
function (zmq_version). What's missing is a version macro. I'll take 
care of adding that into the core.

Have I missed anything?
