The build scripts for my alpine-linux distro are in git. When building lighttpd it picks up the git description tag for the distro build scripts and says lighttpd is a development version.

Fix is easy, just check if there is a .git dir in $top_srcdir like you do with svn.

ncdev:~/src/lighttpd-1.4.x$ svn diff
