Bug Description

For the debian binaries and the linux binaries, the --version message which should include the revision shows "undefined" instead:

(dpkg)
$ xtrabackup --version
xtrabackup version 2.0.6 for Percona Server 5.1.59 unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)
$ xtrabackup_51 --version
xtrabackup_51 version 2.0.6 for MySQL server 5.1.59 unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)
$ xtrabackup_55 --version
xtrabackup_55 version 2.0.6 for Percona Server 5.5.16 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)
$ xtrabackup_56 --version
xtrabackup_56 version 2.0.6 for MySQL server 5.6.10 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)

(binary .tar.gz)
$ bin/xtrabackup --version
bin/xtrabackup version 2.0.6 for Percona Server 5.1.59 unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)
$ bin/xtrabackup_51 --version
bin/xtrabackup_51 version 2.0.6 for MySQL server 5.1.59 unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)
$ bin/xtrabackup_55 --version
bin/xtrabackup_55 version 2.0.6 for Percona Server 5.5.16 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: undefined)

For RPM, it shows the revision id correctly:

$ xtrabackup --version
xtrabackup version 2.0.6 for Percona Server 5.1.59 unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) (revision id: 521)
$ xtrabackup_51 --version
xtrabackup_51 version 2.0.6 for MySQL server 5.1.59 unknown-linux-gnu (x86_64) (revision id: 521)
$ xtrabackup_55 --version
xtrabackup_55 version 2.0.6 for Percona Server 5.5.16 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: 521)
$ xtrabackup_56 --version
xtrabackup_56 version 2.0.6 for MySQL server 5.6.10 Linux (x86_64) (revision id: 521)

In order to fix this, XTRABACKUP_REVISION needs to be exported from the binary and dpkg builders, as correctly done in the RPM builder.
