how about

svn info http://svn.gnucash.org/repo/gnucash/trunk/

to get the latest version number, then with the correct revision number:

git svn clone -r[rev#] http://svn.gnucash.org/repo/gnucash/trunk .
git svn rebase

Multiple branches in separate directories?

[1] recommends that if you work with multiple branches, to have each branch in a separate local Git clone because checking out branches causes Git to change all files and thus forces a full build when you next run make.

Has this been verified? From what I understand, checking out Git topic branches only causes Git to change files which are actually different--files which have the same content across both the branches are left untouched.
