Thanks! I'm now running a build on Linux to see what I should have
seen, but I think I already know.

On Windows, there's an error: the output hasn't changed. I think I
know what the error is: svnversion doesn't exist in the PATH; it's
svnversion.exe which does....

Testing that assumption now....

[5 minutes later] nope. I'm not seeing the same output as in Linux. Any ideas?

Thanks for the quick turn-around on the feature!
