[scribus] Build Version Ascertainable?

I've been building Scribus from the high watermark of SVN (1.5) and need 
to determine what version my currently running edition is from.
Using Help-About does not provide me the Subversion version and gives me 
a date of "1 August 2012" when my system notes I built it 18:33:17 
09/10/12 PDT.

Is the Subversion version which Scribus is built from ascertainable from 
a running instance?  If not, is there a file is the staged tree that 
might reflect it?  I built Scribus using Gentoo's portage facility which 
basically pulls whatever is HEAD at the time I update.  In this case, I 
think I last successfully built on 18:33:17 09/10/12 PDT.  I'm going to 
go look at the Subversion repository (I hope there is a websvn 
(http://websvn.tigris.org/) interface) and determine what version was 
HEAD around that time.

It seems to me having a Subversion version and date included in the 
About box might be helpful.
