You need to use SubWCRev to extract the version of your working copy.
You give it a template file which has markers in like "$WCREV$" and it
generates a copy but with those markers replaced with real data.

For C programs you can create a template header, Revision.in


I have a batch file which runs SubWCRev like this:

@echo off
"C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\SubWCRev" . Revision.in Revision.h

I can then rebuild and get the version information included.

If your dev environment includes a pre-build step you can call the
program from there. Alternatively you could use a TSVN client side
post-commit hook and post-update hook to call it.
