Some of the source files for jucheck.exe rely on PluginVersion.h.  This file is created during build of the regutils folder, however for an au-all build regutils would NOT be built and so would result in a build error.  Since jucheck depends on that file, it should be included as a build target.

EVALUATION This can be done easily by adding $(VERSION_DEST) to the prerequisites of one of the major targets in the checker Makefile.

EVALUATION A PluginVersion.h target should be added to jupdate Makefile (copied from regutils Makefile) so PluginVersion.h will be created if it does not exist.
