As you can see here, they're clearly in the source:
Just to make sure you're on the correct branch - Go to your local git
directory and type:
    git pull
    git checkout master
    git submodule init
    git submodule update

OK, I seem to have shot my foot off (again) with git:

fun@lt14000:~/lmms-git$  git pull
There is no tracking information for the current branch.
Please specify which branch you want to merge with.
See git-pull(1) for details

    git pull <remote> <branch>

If you wish to set tracking information for this branch you can do so with:

    git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/<branch> master

fun@lt14000:~/lmms-git$     git checkout master
Already on 'master'

Obviously there's something really simple I'm doing wrong ...

(this is one reason I'd love the "about" box to include the build date
and build ID)

My advice is, remove your lmms-git directory and start over by cloning the repository from github:

cd ~
rm lmms-git -R
git clone git://github.com/LMMS/lmms.git lmms-git
cd lmms-git
git checkout master
git submodule init
git submodule update

Then just follow the build instructions.
