Sorry for coming to this discussion this late, but IMHO, using the "RCS
way" (ident with $Id$ in the source code *and* the binary) seems to me
to be the best solution for what Katherine needs.

'ident'ing the resulting binary gives you exactly what you need, the
list of all revisions of the sources used to compile that binary.
