Unfortunately I have to use Launchpad Recipe's supported substitution
variables here, and while they do have one for the latest git-tag if I
build locally this doesn't work on launchpad itself.  The reason for
this is that the launchpad recipe builders don't have git proper, but
instead rely on bzr-git imports (the package is actually building off
the launchpad bzr import of the Wine git tree merged with my packaging
bzr branch).

Yeah it's a bit lame, and I'll raise the issue with the launchpad folks
when I see them next, but it's a pretty minor problem atm.
