Thank you for checking this. --disable-dependency-tracking works for me
as well.

Given that there are now at least two workarounds and the issue will be
only seen when building git master on platforms with older automake
versions I think there is not needed to change anything in the code. As
we already talked about it would be sufficient to have a hint in the
developer documentation there this issue might happen on RHEL7 and how
to get around it.
