AVR Studio provides a mechanism for reading the fuses of a chip (in my case the ATmega168) attached to the STK500.

The results are shown as checks (or not checks) in a set of checkboxes on the Fuse page of the STK500 dialog.

There is also an "Auto" page that apparently allows you to read fuse values. It generates a HEX file - not clear what the file contains or how it is formatted.

I am looking for a way to record the current fuse values in an ASCII file so I can keep track of what I have changed, perhaps put it under version control.

Is there any way to do this?

That file will be in Intel hex format - should be fine for committing to a version control system. It's fairly easy to pick out the hex values from such a file in amongst the address and crc part of the record - you can just load the file into any text editor like Notepad.
