It's a bug. svnversion uses svn_client_status() under-the-hood, and
in the newer Subversion, the status operation has learned about
svn:externals. For svnversion to work correctly, svn_client_status()
should take a boolean flag for including/ignoring svn:externals (which
is set to "ignore" when called by svnversion).
