 I'm just looking at the 6.4.3 build on Debian/sid, and 'g.version -g' is
 not printing an empty "revision=" as expected, rather it is printing
 "revision=Unversioned directory". This is because of a change in
 'svnversion' behavior between Subversion versions 1.6 and 1.7.

 It's a problem because the space in the string breaks using "eval
 `g.version -g`".

 suggested patch:
 --- configure.in        (revision 57623)
 +++ configure.in        (working copy)

 +   if test "$GRASS_VERSION_SVN" = "exported" -o "$GRASS_VERSION_SVN" =

 any comments or objections before I commit?
