$Revision$ doesn't interact well with CVS.  It is an annoyance to do
merges when it is present.  This may not matter for autoconf.

Some places, like the ex-Cygnus part of Red Hat, import tools into
their own CVS repository.  This provides a nice way for all developers
to get the right version -- everyone just uses the current CVS
version.  Adding something like a $Revision$ tag which has a real
meaning means that anybody importing autoconf into their own
repository has to know about this and account for it.

I prefer hand-maintaining any version number that has a real meaning
attached to it.
