That indeed is the problem. As long as the appname doesn't contain  
numerals, the AX_COMPARE_VERSION macro will strip it for us (so this  
isn't a problem), but this fails for appnames with numerals in them.

That's why I lowered the requirement for now, so that at least we get  
some activity here... :-) It's easy enough to change to a higher  
version in the m4/nut_check_asciidoc.m4 file later on.

Most applications will only return the version info so that would be  
less of a surprise. On the other hand, stripping the result up to (and  
including) the last space is easy enough to fix. Commit r2674 seems to  
do the job nicely (although I'm not certain about the portability).
