$ git status --untracked-files=all
HEAD detached at origin/master
Untracked files:
  (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)

nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)

FWIW, I've noticed .gitignore is currently carefully organized to list every
single file in every single folder as part of various stages of the build, but
I'll note that this heavily encourages skew over time as you have to remember
to update that file every time any change is made (and maybe even to

However, the simple reality is that everything under srcm4 should be ignored
and all files under srclib except Makefile.am should be ignored, and so you
can replace over half the contents of the file with a much simpler set of
three rules (though this would break the careful staged organization you
currently have).
