It should look something like this:

Aeolus.oscogvm$ grep FILEVERSIONVALUES build.win32x86/squeak.cog.spur/LOGF
i686-w64-mingw32-windres --include-dir ../../platforms/win32/misc -D_WIN32
'-DFILEVERSIONSTRING=\"2018.8.25.1913\\0\"' -i Squeak.rc -o
i686-w64-mingw32-windres --include-dir ../../platforms/win32/misc -D_WIN32
'-DFILEVERSIONSTRING=\"2018.8.25.1913\\0\"' -i build/vm/Squeak.res -o

where the values are the checkin date of the VM sources as produced by a
compiled program.  Here's the rule in common/Makefile.tools:

RCFLAGS:= --include-dir $(PLATDIR)/win32/misc -D_WIN32

And here's the rules for them:

SVNMAJOR := $(shell sed -e "s/^static.*GitRawRevisionString.*Rev:
\([0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]\).*/\\1/p" -e d $(PLATDIR)/Cross/vm/sqSCCSVersion.h
| sed -e 's/^0*//')
SVNMINOR := $(shell sed -e "s/^static.*GitRawRevisionString.*Rev:
[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]\([0-9][0-9]\).*/\\1/p" -e "s/^0*//" -e d
$(PLATDIR)/Cross/vm/sqSCCSVersion.h | sed -e 's/^0*//')

So what I suspect has happened is that you've checked out the sources but
not yet run scripts/updateSCCSVersions which has to be run before compiling
for the first time.  [This is IMO a bug with git, which will not embed any
version control info in files on checkin or checkout; one has to use
triggers, which means no info on the first checkout :-( ).

If you /can/ instead of just running scripts/updateSCCSVersions you might
add a rule that will run scripts/updateSCCSVersions if SVNMAJOR ends up
being empty.  I'll then adapt that on the Mac builds.

Apologies.  This is covered in README.md, but that's hardly a satisfactory
