Patch fixing LATESTREVISION determination
Please find attach a patch that fixes LATESTREVISION determination, which actually fixes "manual" articles/books build (i.e., typing `make` in the right directory).
The current code has two problems:
1. Git or SVN information retrieval depends on the current locale, and doesn't work with non-English ones.
2. Fallback for LATESTREVISION most of the time (sometimes works, probable race) itself fails because PWD is set to document's directory + '/obj', but sources are in the document's directory.
Point 2 is the most annoying because documentation builds simply fails (`xsltproc` becomes unable to resolve 'latestrevision.*' variables in, e.g., articles). But point 2's failure appears only because of point 1's failure, which doesn't happen on a machine with English or C locale.
