Regardless of which version of DMD one ends up using, the DMD help message only
displays the base release version. Meaning, if I'm running beta 1, 2, 3 or rc 1
of release 2.065, typing dmd at the shell prompt always yields "DMD[32/64] D
Compiler v2.065". It must be possible to change this so that the correct
version information is displayed. If I'm running beta 1, it should say
"DMD[32/64] D Compiler v2.065 beta 1" and the same goes for any other release.

Version number is set by the version file.
https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dmd/blob/master/VERSION
We should remove that file because it requires manual updating. Instead we can
set the version from the build script.

We should indeed remove VERSION from the repo. At no time should HEAD be tagged
with a specific version number. This creates confusion when trying to identify
between changes intended for master vs. the branch and unnecessarily
complicates the pick process.
