You mean the repository revision number, rather than the last modified
revision of the file?

If so, I think the answer is no, you can't do that. The usual thing
people do if they want the repository revision number built into an
executable that they are compiling is to put a call to svn info or
svnversion into their make script for the project. Have the make script
write some form of the revision number to an unversioned file, and link
that file into your project.

If you really wanted the last modified revision of the file, then look
up svn:keywords in the book.
