Just guessing based on generic git knowledge here:
If you build in a sibling directory of the .git directory, git should
"see" the GITDIR, and it should work. Where is your build directory
relative to the GITDIR?
I suspect you could also set GITDIR=/path/to/python/source/.git in
make's process environment, and do "make patchcheck" outside of the
Python source tree successfully.
