git --date=format: Not supported

With Chris' commit to rtems-docs, I tried to build the docs again. But
something has changed and now the rtems-docs waf infrastructure depends on
a newer version of git than is available. Tracking down the failed command,
I ended up here:

[joel at localhost rtems-docs]$ git log -1 --format=%h,%cd
fatal: unknown date format format:%e,%B,%Y
[joel at localhost rtems-docs]$ git --version
git version

This is the short intro to --date= in the man page shows:

           Only takes effect for dates shown in human-readable format, such
           when using "--pretty". config variable sets a default
           value for log command’s --date option.

To support Centos 7, we will have to restrict what we use.
