So it's bug#20799, allright.  Hmm...

I'm not sure I understand why we invoke Git in this case: the
source-directory is known and used by emacs-repository-get-version, so
why cannot it do the same it does for an in-tree build, i.e. access
the files in .git/ directly, just relative to source-directory?  What
am I missing?
