Improve AM_GNU_MAILUTILS autoconf macro
* mu-aux/mailutils.m4: Don't use packed version representation, because of eventual numerical overflows. Compare versions number by number. Define the following additional constants: MAILUTILS_VERSION_MAJOR, MAILUTILS_VERSION_MINOR, and MAILUTILS_VERSION_PATCH. * NEWS: Document changes.
