SVN revision scripts error if .svn isn't found

Reported by: astrange Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.3
Component: Perian-Main Version: 1.1.2
Severity: normal Keywords:


The scripts that set the SVN versions for Perian and ffmpeg print errors if you try building from an svn export. This doesn't interrupt the build but is pretty annoying, and also probably results in a bad version string for any binary not built from SVN.

Given that there's no svn revision information in an export, what would be the best fallback here?

Maybe have 'make release' build a source tarball with the SVN revisions in a header?

Just put an if .svn, do foo, else if not .svn, end/break/whatever.

I think we might as well try not to do this, since we want revisions in the version string.
