Following up on this, the missing "nnnn" version number comes from the file
platforms/unix/svnversion. This file is not itself under version control, but
is created and used by platforms/unix/cmake/configure. If the svnversion
file is not present, and if the .svn control files are also not present, then
you would end up with a version tag such as "4.10.2-" when something like
"4.10.2-2616" was expected.
Conclusion: platforms/unix/cmake/configure must be run at least one time
on a platforms tree that has the ./svn control files. Once that has been
done, the platforms/unix/svnversion file will be present.
