Not with git. But some while ago I made a port for gpg4usb which is only 
distributed in source as the subversion repository. So I made a patch 
adding USE_SVNREPO to the framework:

You can take an idea from there.
The main point is to make such download reproducible. Times of 
files/links/etc should be adjusted.
