I didn't express myself well enough I guess. What I'm after is
inclusion of the svnversion(1) information to a binary that gets
always built and installed as part of 'make buildworld/installworld'
regardless of src.conf(5) settings so that it would be possible to
identify the SVN version where the currently installed world comes
from. Now that I think loader(8) is not a good candidate for that
because of WITHOUT_BOOT. I was hoping that freebsd-version would be
such binary but since it's only a shell script that extracts the
information from various binaries it won't work unless those other
binaries have that information included in them.
