I found that the .svnversion file should be named SVN-r<revision>. This leads to 
FFMPEG_VERSION to be set as '18630-4:0.5+svn20090420-3', not 'SVN-
r18630-4:0.5+svn20090420-3' as upstream intended

Another thing is that it's possible for the resulting FFMPEG_VERSION to be 
defined as SVN-r$revision, git-$revision, or UNKNOWN. What do you think of 
setting the $revision part as 'deb' so the resulting FFMPEG_VERSION would be 
defined as 'deb-4:0.5+svn20090420-3'?

Also, is it necessary to have .svnversion reside in the source tarball? That 
seems like something that should be kept inside of the debian dir.
