Versioning vs Revisioning

Hi all,

I have tried to find out about revision building using subversion (or
RCS or CVS) and I have not been able to find my answer.

At my previous employer, where spending money on tools didn't seem to be
that big of an issue, we used ClearCase and we were able to mark all
versions of a file at a certain stage belonging to a certain revision.

For example, version 1.3 of a.c and 1.5.4 of b.c and 2.3.6 of c.c belong
to revision 1.18.4 of the overall product X.

At my current employer, we're not that lucky, so we're currently using
come commercialized version of RCS with a semi-pretty front-end. It will
store our files in ',v' files but it is unable to build a deployment
package out of these files.

For that, we're manually moving files from a certain version into a
revision control package (Roundtable). Since this is a manual process,
it is quite tedious and prone to errors.

Is there any way that subversion can handle this better?

Best regards,
