	True. We may be able to "fake" it using something like this:

SVN_REV=`egrep 'ver.*mythtv' .svn/dir-wcprops | sed 's/^.*ver\///' | 
sed 's/\/.*//'`

in configure could set a DEFINE for programs/myth*end to use
(assuming that the source was actually checked out).
It would of course only be accurate if the source tree
had no local modifications.
