This is not a SVN build.
Thus, svnversion.h is not generated.

It shouldn't be generated because version.conf should say is_release=1 (see r38933). But it should be present in the release tarball.

What am i missing?
(and yes, i did distclean before build)

Oh, shoot.  Looks like svnversion.h is removed by clean and/or dist-clean.
