The TortiseSVN folk have a little utility:

"SubWCRev.exe: a small command line tool which you can use in your build 
steps. It takes a file as an argument and replaces all "$WCREV$" strings 
with the revision of your working copy. This is useful if you want to 
include the Subversion revision in the version of your project. If you 
need an example, check out the TortoiseSVN source and/or have a look at 
the small help file."
