Please don't assume that the source code is built from a git repository.
On debian, we build from the tarball, which is extracted from the git
repo, and we have nothing for "git rev-parse" to draw from.

For the cost of one extra commit just before tagging, you could populate
a version.txt file and this then becomes $(shell cat version.txt).

simplicity, simplicity :)
