I could probably remove the dependency from the custom target, but for now I used a test and set it to CMakeLists.txt if SVN_MARKER-NOTFOUND.
P.S. have you compiled from source at all since 1.0? Any comments on my cmake overhaul for the Mac build?

This works in SVN source, but now in the release source it doesn't work. There is an error that there is no rule to make SVN_MARKER-NOTFOUND.

The equator is so long, it could encircle the earth completely once.
