Beside that mkgmap itself reports as version always only "svn",
I don't think that it is a good idea to have this splitted, into
a hardcoded part and a variable one. Would make it very hard
to adjust the text for your map if you need to do so.
And redirecting the output of "mkgmap --version" to a file is
a really simple task.
