Ummmmm, no ...

cerebus:/tmp/ffmpeg-export-2007-04-19$ cat version.sh 

OLD_REVISION=`cat version.h 2> /dev/null`

# Update version.h only on revision changes to avoid spurious rebuilds
if test "$NEW_REVISION" != "$OLD_REVISION"; then
    echo "$NEW_REVISION" > version.h

There is no way this script can result in rUNKNOWN.  You must be using a
different snapshot.
