One solutions would be to add something like this to the tinderbox


    ./ pull -r

    --with-build-version="Daily built at $pull_date"

Another solution would be to define a default value in the configure.in,

    BUILD_VER_STRING="Built at $now"

Someone mentioned that it would be better to mention the last commit id.
It is not easy with the many repositories. I would wait with this
approach for the single repo.

What do you think?
