[Distutils] setuptools patch for egg_info.get_svn_revision; max() doesn't like an empty list

I looked high and low for an official spot to submit setuptools
patches but just found this mailing list. Please accept my apologies
in advance if this is inconvenient.
I found that when running setup.py commands on an svn checkout while
having just added a directory, but not committed it yet, I would get
"ValueError: max() arg is an empty sequence" from around line 227 of
egg_info.py. This seems easily fixable by checking the length of
all_revs before handing it to max() and the patch attached solves the
problem I was having. After applying the patch to the source, `python
setup.py test` ran ok.
