The ${PKGVERSION}--${PKGVERSION} looks like a bug to me, but we don't
do that ${PKGVERSION} ourselves, right ? So you should tell more about
how you generate them.

The "next" files serve the purpose of doing upgrades between revisions
advertising as the same version (2.1.8dev -> 2.1.8devnext -> 2.1.8dev).
They don't really make sense for a release, so maybe we should make
the Makefiles aware of what is a release and what a dev version and behave
differently based on that.

A patch is welcome.
