% sha1sum /dev/null
da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709  /dev/null
% sha1 -r /dev/null
da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709 /dev/null
% openssl sha1 /dev/null
SHA1(/dev/null)= da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709
% sha1 /dev/null
SHA1 (/dev/null) = da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709
% gpg --print-md sha1 /dev/null
/dev/null: DA39 A3EE 5E6B 4B0D 3255  BFEF 9560 1890 AFD8 0709

FWIW, at Subversion the .sha1 files contain just the bare sha1.
