Yes - but that still requires the build process to interact with the source
code control tools. One more step to perform. I'd like very much to be able
to separate these actions.

I'd hate if it required me to write something like this in each Makefile:

        svn info . | grep Revision | awk '{ print "#define REVISION" $2 }' >

Not to mention all the troubles to remember to keep version.h updated after
each 'svn up' (rm version.h; make version.h).
And not to mention the troubles of doing this portably (MSVC vs. Makefile

I'd like to do a simple 'svn up' and be done with it.
