Hm, then it seems to me that I did something 'wrong' when I co'ed the 
svn repository. I am an anonymous user, aka having no svn account.

This how I co'ed the repo:

svn checkout svn:// src

Doing so gives me a  $FreeBSD$ on top of each file w/o a rev id.

Do I need something else to be passed to svn co?

Well, in my case I did type 'i' many times and now I am happy with a 2 
hour install/upgrade cycle from 7.1 to current.
