Not sure what you mean.  AFAIK, the build scripts don't require it.

Yes I know, the bzr revision number is always relative to some bzr
branch, while the bzr revid is universally unique.  But my point is
that `emacs-bzr-version' gives both of them (on an Emacs built from a
bzr branch), and everyone in these lists prefer the bzr revno, because
is shorter/simpler.

Therefore, what I'd like is that "emacs-bzr-version" gave the exact
same string from an Emacs built from either bzr-trunk or git-master.
