This fix causes trouble when attempting to 'sudo make install' any
non-tagged Git revision:

  $ git checkout v2.36.0-rc2 
  HEAD is now at 11cfe55261 Git 2.36-rc2
  $ git commit --allow-empty -m foo
  [detached HEAD 237ee2a6ef] foo
  $ make
  GIT_VERSION = 2.36.0.rc2.1.g237ee2a6ef
  $ sudo make install
  GIT_VERSION = 2.36.0-rc2
      CC version.o
