Missed this on the first round: you meant to use += on the .gitignore
line.  Without it, you aren't excluding ANY .o files.

I thought you WANTED shell globbing; but now I see that you don't (you
want a literal glob output into the .gitignore).  I guess I got thrown
by the fact that I didn't see *.o in the generated .gitignore (never
mind that I didn't see ANY .o...), from the bug pointed out above.

Okay, so you DO want to convert make's spaces into newlines, while
avoiding globbing.  My initial thought was that 'xargs -n1' feels a bit
heavy-handed; tr ' ' '\n' would do the same thing but then you aren't
shaving off any processes or any typing.  You can temporarily disable
file globbing by playing with 'set -f', but that also feels awkward.  So
maybe your approach is best after all.
