There is.  I discovered that everything works ok if you build using 
xcodebuild from the command line.  In that case it makes gnc-vcs-info.h 
from gnc-vcs-info.h.in as it should.  However if you try to build using 
XCode itself it somehow skips that step and later complains that 
gnc-vcs-info.h doesn't exist.  This feels like a bug in either cmake or 
XCode.  I don't think it is worth pursuing since building using 
scodebuild works.  I was using XCode since it seems faster.  Since the 
notes on using SCode say to use xcodebuild I don't think there is 
anything more that needs to be done.  It might be possible to work 
around the problem, but probably not worth the trouble.
