There's a C API to get the youngest revision:
RA->get_youngest_revision.
So I recommend either:

   - modify the 'minimal_client.c' program to open an RA session to a
URL, then call RA->get_youngest_rev. This is a teeny change.

   - if you'll always have a working copy available, you could run 'svn
status -u' and parse the last line. No update side-effects.
