Please note that what svnversion reports is the last revision number of
the *repository* as of the most recent update of the working copy in
question -- not (necessarily) the last revision that actually applied to
that working copy.

To illustrate:

g1-227(9.1-S)[1] cd /usr/src
g1-227(9.1-S)[2] svnversion 
g1-227(9.1-S)[3] svn info
Path: .
Working Copy Root Path: /usr/src
URL: file:///svn/freebsd/src/base/stable/9
Repository Root: file:///svn/freebsd/src/base
Repository UUID: ccf9f872-aa2e-dd11-9fc8-001c23d0bc1f
Revision: 249793
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Author: mckusick
Last Changed Rev: 249788
Last Changed Date: 2013-04-22 23:28:49 -0700 (Mon, 22 Apr 2013)

g1-227(9.1-S)[4] uname -v
FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE #434  r249788M/249793:901504: Tue Apr 23 04:48:16 PDT 2013     root at 

(Note the "M" suffix, indicating that I've modified the sources.
That is because I modified to provide the string
"r249788M/249793:901504" instead of what the "stock"
would provide, which would have been "r249793M".)
