Right. I fixed this a little bit differently, though.
getluatexsvnversion.sh now assumes it is run inside source/, so it
has "svnversion -c .", and build.sh does

   (cd source; ./texk/web2c/luatexdir/getluatexsvnversion.sh )

I did it like this because I cannot test relative paths in build.sh
myself (and those build.sh files have had those relative paths
since day one, also in pdftex)

Best wishes,
