I recently tried to extract vlc sources, and I have made a source tarball without .git repository subdirectory.
vlc compilation have stopped shortly when invoking git --git-dir="$(top_srcdir)/.git/" command in src/Makefile.
I tried the alternative to keep .git repository into source tarball, but now the source rpm file weights up to 190 MB.
This patch try to bring a solution to this problem for packagers when 1.2 official release will be out.
