You can use the svnversion tool to get the highest last-commit revision.

If you're working on windows, you can also use the SubWCRev.exe tool
TortoiseSVN uses (tortoisesvn.tigris.org/download.html). It takes a file
(e.g. version.in), checks the working copy for the highest last-commit
revision and then creates an output file (e.g. version.h) where all
$WCREV$ strings in the "in" file are replaced with that revision number.
TortoiseSVN uses this tool so that the last number in the version
information represents the last-committed revision number.
