Installed bitcoind via this PPA and it seems to work just fine after install with my testnet configuration.  I'm on Maverick running as follows:

Code:
~$ uname -a
Linux ******* 2.6.35-30-generic #61-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 11 15:29:15 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
~$

I've seen this too somewhere in the cli, it's not isolated to just 0.6.2

Code:
$ bitcoind -?
Bitcoin version vCLIENT_VERSION_MAJOR.CLIENT_VERSION_MINOR.CLIENT_VERSION_REVISION.CLIENT_VERSION_BUILD-g8ff1873-beta

We switched to a new system for automatically determining the client version based on git information, or data stored in source archives. It was tested for both compiles from git and source tarballs, but a refactor shortly afterwards broke the second mode. We only noticed much later, since the normal official builds are done from git.

In any case, fixed for 0.7.0.
