well, while writing the above, i was thinking that during the make phase where 
this information is updated that a .bat or shell script could be generated that 
sets or exports an environment variable which would then be run... but then in 
my later post, i thought that the process could just go ahead and set that 
environment variable during the run eliminating the need to create an additional 
file and execute it...

but i must admit that i'm not sure when this file is updated... i just went to 
look at my debug logs but see that there's something else i need to add... but 
how/where to add "--debug-log=lazdbg1.log" as a parameter so that the entire 
build process is recorded? i have that as a command line parameter to 

anyway, looking at an old log, i see that svn2revisioninc.exe is executed just 
after synedit is compiled and right before the ide is compiled and linked... so 
that is where i was thinking that the environment variable might be set or the 
script to set it might be generated...
