[Bug-freedink] Version strings for freedink-data

Hi there-

I’m building a package for freedink and freedink-data for HomeBrew, and I 
received the following feedback from the maintainers, which I thought I’d pass 

In the Makefile for freedink-data, the build date is included in the version 
string.  This is probably not the best idea, since it means that my version of 
freedink-data will appear to be newer than yours, simply by virtue of the fact 
that I happened to type make after you did.  It might be a good idea to set 
your versions to static strings.  If you want the build date in there 
somewhere, then put it elsewhere, but part of the version string probably isn’t 
the best place.

In any case, for HomeBrew, I’m munging the date portion of the source 
directory, and using that in lieu of a build date.
