I would prefer to keep Git out of the Rust bootstrap still.  The reason
is that I don't want to rebuild the whole toolchain for every Git update.

Obviously there are other ways to deal with that, so it's not a very
hard opinion.

It seems odd to me that the release tarballs would run 'git ls-files'
anyway.  Do they actually contain a git repository?  Would it work to
simply replace the invokation with 'find'?
