I don't see what's good about having different versions on different
machines. Do you plan to make packages from different machines ?
The whole point of a version is to identify a snapshot of the source
tree in a unique way.
If mahine A and B and C all build the same source tree at different times
you end up with 3 versions, and even if they have different source tree
you still dunno which source tree was earlier, which was latter.

The bug was in revno.h not being there properly, or being forcebly
overridden. Fix that one (I did...).
