#458 CMake and Version.cpp.in cause compile error

Latest Subversion

Hey there,

I just checked out latest SVN and tried to compile on Karmic 9.10. I got compile errors for Version.cpp very similiar to this bug in supertux: http://supertux.lethargik.org/bugs/view.php?id=410

That bug was reported in 2008 and mentions cmake being the cause. However, I took the proposed updated FindSubversion.script, but there is no difference to mine. So my workaround so far was to modify Version.cpp.in to the following:

const std::string& FreeOrionVersionString()
static const std::string retval = "%(freeorion_version)s [Rev 3345]";
return retval;

I replaced the call to the FindSubversion.script by some hardcoded value and make finished without errors.
