Yes, I think you are correct that LIBCDIO_VERSION_NUM is not set in a helpful way and that "cut" is now faulty.

In commit 2d22ae1 on the "dev" branch I have hand coded this for now to 10001 (the branch release there is 1.0.1 to follow a convention that x.y.zjunk => x*10000 + y*100 + z

This puts a limit of no more than 99 minor or release numbers, but that has been the case for the first 17 years or so.

Thanks for reporting

Since the 1.0.0 release LIBCDIO_VERSION_NUM is defined to 1

This definition is set from RELEASE_NUM=1.0.0 in configure.ac like
LIBCDIO_VERSION_NUM=`echo RELEASE_NUM | cut -d . -f 1 | tr -d a-z`

This meant that with previous release we have a number like 94 and now with 1 all software's who test LIBCDIO_VERSION_NUM fail to build.

The best I think is to set LIBCDIO_VERSION_NUM to 100
