My version just didn't override an existing revno.h in that case (missing
git tree or git), so the existing revno.h (supposedly containing good
data as produced by the "make" call invoked by package builder) wouldn't
be overridden by one with bad data (meaingless date).

The override is confirmed to happen with your commit. Checked with
