Patch for /usr/src/Makefile.inc1 to allow update target to use git

make update in /usr/src doesn't know how to pull an update from git. The attached diff is based upon how /usr/port/Makefile does this.

Net/gitup support

devel/git and net/gitup support.
And src and ports for updates.

^Triage: mark as overcome by events.

I don't think jhb saw this before his most recent commit (e290182bcf3895ca659dff111bca6a077c4708b1), sorry.

Oops, I had not seen it, no.  I'm not sure 'git pull' is really what we'd want to recommend to users which is why I had assumed it was best to just remove the target outright.  Perhaps 'git pull --ff-merge-only' would be ok, but I do think at this point we should just let users manage this directly.  Note that we haven't supported updating docs or ports since the transition to svn for example.
