Comment (by Chris Johns):

 I can ignore a detached HEAD as condition for being dirty. That seems

 I will also ignore untracked files. They should be ignored in a build if
 nothing is modified. It does assume the build is not modified by untracked
 files. Untracked cannot be easily handled as I cannot look into the files
 or make assumptions. This is a change to the initial implementation but I
 am seeing tool builds with up to date repos that have untracked files like
 logs, or patches and that is not a true indication of the state. Needing a
 completely clean directory does seem a little onerous.

 Is a modified submodule considered dirty? I think so. For example:
 $ git st
 On branch master
 Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
 Changes not staged for commit:
   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working
   (commit or discard the untracked or modified content in submodules)

         modified:   freebsd-org (new commits, untracked content)
