This patch is wrong, I think.

The canonical example of order-only is something like

  http://www.kolpackov.net/pipermail/notes/2004-January/000001.html

where you want to make sure an output directory already exists, but
you do not want to list that as prerequiste _input_ to produce
output from the source.  G-V-F has real information that is used to
affect the output, which is quite a different animal.

Try applying this 6-patch series, "make clean; make git.spec", and
then "git checkout HEAD~2" to come back to the commit for this
patch.  And then try running "make git.spec".  I think Version line
will not change and still claim you are building a version with the
6-patch series fully applied.

After a quick scan of the other 5 patches in the series, they looked
all sensible, and I do not think any of them depends on the change
in this patch, so I think we can safely drop this one.

Administrivia: as I said in the whats cooking message, I'll be
taking things slow til the beginning of next month, so if your (not
limited to Felipe) messages are not answered by me, it merely means
they were not yet read by me (as opposed to dismissed as not worth
reading without responding).
