The way to get rid of the " Revision: VM: $URL$ $Date$ Date: $Rev$
Plugins:  $Rev$" nonsense in the version report is to make sure to run
exactly once before you build.  From then on the checkin script
makes sure that this is up-to-date.  You'll get something more useful such

VM: 201705161708 eliot at Sisyphus:oscogvm $ Date: Tue May 16 10:08:12 2017
-0700 $

which allows me to identify this VM as one I build myself on my Mac Mini
Sisyphus in directory oscogvm, which contrasts with the official binary VMs.

Ideally the script would be run automatically after the repository was
cloned.  Do git mavens know if a post-clone hook is available to make this
happen?  If so, can someone make it so?

best, Eliot
