As I was trying to build PyLucene 2.9.4 with Lucene 2.9.4 on Windows 7 with 
Cygwin (the usual Windows setup), I found a problem with building Lucene 
Core 2.9.4. The ${svnversion} trickery to run the svnversion executable from 
ant in common-build.xml produces an invalid MANIFEST.MF file as follows 
(note extra lines of garbage for "Implementation Version"):

   Manifest-Version: 1.0
   Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.7.0
   Created-By: 17.1-b03 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
   Specification-Title: Lucene Search Engine: core
   Specification-Version: 2.9.4

    :allocate: No tty allocated
