It'd be nice if this was printed under the linked dependencies section
of `svn --version --verbose`, but I don't see a good way of adding that
since serf is required by the dynamically loadable ra layer and isn't a
core dependency.

Maybe we should extend the ra layer vtable to provide a function to ask
for linked libs to be added to that list. Since you're already talking
about changing the vtable that would be the solution I would prefer.

Shoving the version number of the library in the description doesn't fit
with the existing behavior of our output and forces users of our library
that want to find this information out to parse the description.

That said I'd be fine with doing this in this manor for 1.8.x if we
don't want to rev the vtable for it. It seems like a reasonable quick
hack to get the information available.
