These two approaches would have the exact same effect.  If this stuff was in builddata.c, then the -DOLSRD_VERSION would only matter when you build builddata.o, then make wouldn't try to build builddata.o again until builddata.c changed.  make would not try to build builddata.o again based on different CFLAGS unless you do some crazy tricks.
