I am not quite sure I follow your set-up. Do you have three working
trees connected to a repository (via contrib/workdir/git-new-workdir
perhaps), each having a checkout of its own branch? And in one
working directory that has build-a checked out, a new commit touches
one file, <target>.opt, to make a new commit:
Because you said that branch b and c hasn't changed at all, I do not
see how your build-b and/or build-c directories become dirty.
