Well, you don't need a build server, nor do you need nant. What I would recommend is that you get subWCRev program and use MSBuild to run it as part of a pre-build event. Have your pre-build event do an svn update then use subWCRev to put the revision number into your assembly info file. Check subWCRev into your project folder too. You should also have it embed whether there were un-comited changes in the WC when it was built.

That's really the minimum you need. Then any dev that builds will automatically get the rev number embedded into the binaries automatically.
