A `scons build` done with a git shallow clone results in the version string:
`[master]:~/code/gpsd-shallow $ ./gpsd -V`
`./gpsd: 3.18~dev (revision 3.18~dev-2017-12-13T16:21:22.297582)`

A scons build done with a full clone results in the version string:
`[master]:~/code/gpsd-fullclone $ ./gpsd -V`
`./gpsd: 3.18~dev (revision release-3.17-26-ga78ca3d)`

By shallow clone, I mean:

`git clone --depth=1 http://git.savannah.gnu.org/r/gpsd.git gpsd-shallow`
