Martin, in TeX Live 2012 we still have

  $ dvisvgm --version
  dvisvgm 1.0.11

TeX Live 2013 will certainly provide a newer release and the
corresponding manual page.

Please note that binary packages are only updated once a year though
there might be newer stuff on CTAN.

This is already done by makefiles.  It's impossible to do such things

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
