The best solution I've seen until now is used with pfaedit.  Each
time the author checks something in, he also changes a timestamp file
which contents is printed at start-up time:

  address@hidden:~> pfaedit
  Copyright © 2000-2003 by George Williams.
   Executable based on sources from 11:36 28-4-2003.

I'm too lazy to do that for groff, and usually people using CVS
report bugs of recent snapshots.
