New submission from Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis <Arfrever.FTA at GMail.Com>:

svnversion program from Subversion 1.7 (currently trunk), when invoked
on unversioned directory, prints "Unversioned directory" instead
"exported". This change in output is intentional and won't be reverted.

It causes build failure:
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc -pthread -c -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -
-DSVNVERSION=\"`LC_ALL=C svnversion .`\" -o Modules/getbuildinfo.o
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc: directory": No such file or directory

./Modules/getbuildinfo.c:48: error: expected expression before ';'
make: *** [Modules/getbuildinfo.o] Error 1

I'm attaching the patch which fixes this problem and also updates
expected output of svnversion.
