    I wonder how portable posix character classes are in egrep...

Not to mention head -n.  Maybe both are portable enough, since we're not
compiling on any all-that-old architectures, but still, perhaps:

spacetab=' 	'
XDVI_VERSION_INFO=`egrep "^[$spacetab]+\*" $srcdir/CHANGES | sed 1q | awk '{print $2 " " $3}'`
