I see.  As a temporary solution, I guess I could set that value
hard-coded, like this:

diff --git a/lisp/loadup.el b/lisp/loadup.el
index c32bd00..5c1daab 100644
--- a/lisp/loadup.el
+++ b/lisp/loadup.el

                                 (substring name (length base) exelen))))
-      (setq emacs-bzr-version (condition-case nil (emacs-bzr-get-version)
-                              (error nil)))
+      (setq emacs-bzr-version "address@hidden")
       ;; `emacs-version' is a constant, so we shouldn't change it with `setq'.
       (defconst emacs-version
        (format "%s.%d"

But I hope that `emacs-bzr-get-version' could be adapted to try a
second method when the primary one (the current one) fails.

That second method would assume a git repo instead of a bzr one
(Andreas showed how to get the bzr revid from a git repo).
