Yesterday I got bit by this when doing an MSVC compile of the Terf VM.  So I fixed it for the windows and Mac makefiles (well, almost; Nicolas corrected a slip I made with the mingw/Cygwin windows makefiles).

The fix is simply to search for the unexpanded version string whenever extracting stings from sqSCCSVersion.h.  Will anyone volunteer to make similar changes to the Unix makefiles?  To the plugin builds?
