This happens with automake 1.4 as well. Actually, that's not exactly a
comment. The corresponing line in Makefile.in reads:

$(srcdir)/version.texi: @MAINTAINER_MODE_TRUE@ stamp-vti

./configure replaces @MAINTAINER_MODE_TRUE@ with '' when run with
--enable-maintainer-mode option, otherwise it replaces it with 
'#'. The idea behind this seems to be that only developers will be
willing to remake info files. The produced infos are included
in the distribution, so that end-users won't need any texinfo-related
