Shouldn't smartctl report its version number (smartmontools-5.40 2010-10-16 r3189 according to the man page)?

This should not happen when build from upstream source. Please check whether function utility.cpp:format_version_info() was changed by packager or provide a link to package source+patches.

The above output is likely from OpenSUSE (see ticket #137).

According to smartmontools-5.40-24.4.src.rpm in OpenSUSE Factory Source Repository the version info was removed by smartmontools-nobuild-date.patch.
