Ok not as easy as I hoped it would be since src/netctl doesn't contain
the version string. It's only added when you create a tarball and I'm
not going to change that without discussion first.

@Jouke: If you want to keep it the way it is, readd make upload and I'll
be happy.

Otherwise the makefile could extract the version name from the directory
it is in so if you download the tarball from cgit the dir will be named
"netctl-$version" and you simple remove the "netctl-". Sadly that's a
bit fragile so I'm not sure if we want to do it.
