That's fantastic Dave, thanks for the suggestion; I was going to make
the buildnumber like you have suggested, but couldn't think of a good
reason for the extra complication. Your suggestion has intrigued me to
try it (tomorrow - it's hometime right now).

I wonder if it can be a part of the script itself, and then have the
script edit itself in place (using sed -i)?? Hrm, something to try...

If this works, it's much better than what I originally had because the
fluff is mucho reduced (one less arbitrary file in the build directory).
