The first few lines of the existing pkg-descr for devel/git seems a bit too long and drawn out. Instead, I think it should be replaced with a brief description found on the front page of http://www.git-scm.com/:
"Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency."
Also, trim the Makefile header because everyone seems to be doing it these days.
Fix: Apply the attached patch using `svn patch`. Otherwise, the patch may not apply cleanly due to the $FreeBSD$ keyword. If you would like another patch, ask me.
Patch attached with submission follows:
Over to maintainer (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)

Update pkg-descr. Use text from git-scm.com which is more concise.
While here, trim header.
