Did I typo?  I THOUGHT I said:

  ./util/gnc-svnversion .

Maybe I missed that trailing dot.  If so, my appologies, but you need
that trailing dot.  Can you test that, please?

Yes. That is not a bug.  The tarball is shippped with a gnc-svninfo.h
file which is generated during "make dist".  But based on your hang the
only thing I can think of is that "gnc-svnversion" is somehow hanging
on your system... Which is why I want you to test it.   If it doesn't
hang, then I know it's not that script and I have to look somewhere else.
If it DOES hang, well, then we know where the problem is!

*shrugs*  Honestly, that's useless and non-helpful to me.  I trust you're
using an actual tarball.

Well, that MAY be useful...  But...  I'd like to see the answer to my
original question.  From the /TARBALL/ checkout, I'd like to see what
happens when you run "./util/gnc-svnversion ."
