Actually, this is a 'feature' that was added to our tarball-generating
script (dist.sh). It patches svn_version.h to include the exact
revision number of the tarball, whereas normally the value is just the
string "dev build". IIRC, this was added as a way of knowing whether
somebody was using a client built from tarball, or if they're using
HEAD. Just run 'svn --version' and see.

Of course, I guess this means that 'make check' won't work for a
tarball build. Unless, of course, we patch getopt_tests.py in the
tarball as well. :-)
