I tried several things here, but the underlying issue is that CMake doesn't know to do some action before recalculating dependencies. That means that if you update your repository and it doesn't touch any files in clangBasic, you get an updated SVNVersion.inc but not a rebuilt Clang. It's only on the next build that the change will be picked up, at which point you've already realized the problem.

I can add a guard option that turns this behavior on and off, but I couldn't think of a better answer that would just work.
