This error means the gnc-svnversion failed to run (non-zero exit code)
but $(srcdir)/gnc-svninfo.h doesn't exist. I.e., you're build from the
source repository, but the build system is broken. It might be a "bug"
in gnc-svnversion, or it might be an issue on windows. You'd have to go
into the core-utils build directory and try to run gnc-svnversion from
there to see what might be going wrong.
