  * tests: some portability fixes for MacOS
  Defaulting the directory argument of find to "." is is a GNUism and doesn't
  work on MacOS. Similarly, 'wc -l' on MacOS has spaces in its output, the new
  code is simpler and more portable. Also the test command in the MacOS bash
  apparently cannot handle the '!' operator.

  * remove the "compiled on <timestamp>" from exact version
  This information is not of much help and makes it impossible to create darcs
  binaries reproducably. It also causes problems when building in MacOS.
