I don't know how you build the source tarballs, but maybe you can arrange for a
file like SVN_REV containing the output of svnversion to be created just before
the tarball is built? Then at build time, test for the existence of this file,
read the svn rev from it if it exists or try svnversion or default to "unknown"
(or whatever string) if both fail.

(This won't help people like me who enjoy tracking the source using git-svn, but

Just my 2 cents.
