The problem - or at least inconvenience - with svnversion is it requires
a working copy. A build purist prefers to "svn export" a tag and build
from the export. This way the build is of exactly the same source
delivered to the customers/users.

One option is to do something like "svn info <repo_url>/tags/<release>"
and grab the commit or "last changed" revision. Then export, munge the
release and commit revision into the source where needed, and build.
