Why do you think it's odd? We're at the moment in BETA phase, and those
bear the final version number. We did it the same way with the previous
BETA phases. For 4.1.0 see r37717 and later if you don't believe me :)

Strange... I thought OpenWatcom was only used for the traditional BIOS
(and the VGA BIOS). However it's expected that there are some build
glitches left, because we didn't have time to polish the configure
script after the changes.
