Of those six files, only mysql++.h and _maybe_ the Doxyfile are amenable
to automatic generation.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, Mr. Frey, is to find out
if the version string from configure.in is available as a variable that
autoconf can substitute into Doxygen.in and mysql++.h.in files.
Another way you could do it is to use the #define in config.h, which the
configure script generates. But that means writing a C program (or a
really ugly script) to do the substitution. Much better to leverage
autoconf if we can.
