problem: exits top level shell if no filename is specified, annoyance
aesthetics: cat: /proc/scsi/scsi: No such file or directory, simple
aesthetics: GNU make 3.79.1,
problem: Linux libc5 C Library 5@..
aesthetics: Linux libc6 C Library 2.2,
problem: Linux C++ library 27@..
problem: Net-tools
problem: PPP file
aesthetics: .config, recommend stripping the ^CONFIG_ and =, combine all 'y'
and 'm'

example fix for C library:
sed \
'/C [lL]ibrary /!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/' \

example fix for C++ library:
basename $(/usr/bin/ls -f /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/ \
|gawk '{print $NF}')

example fix for GNU make:
make --version|sed '/version/!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/'

example fix for net-tools:
1) hostname from sh-utils:
hostname --version|sed '/GNU sh/!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/'
2) ifconfig from net-tools:
ifconfig --version 2>&1|sed '/net\-tools/!d; s/[^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/'

pppd requires a proper /etc/ppp/options file before printing the version, if
you have devfs and a disconnecting modem, i.e. usb modem, it must be
attached for the /dev entry or pppd will refuse to run.

I prefer using e2fsck to report the version:
e2fsck -V 2>&1 |sed '/e2fsck/!d; s/e2fsck [^0-9]*\([0-9.]*\).*/\1/'
