 Switching from make alpha to make nightly gives this error:
 updating: mac-langpacks/pt-BR.xpi (deflated 10%)
 You are not currently on a branch.
 Please specify which branch you want to merge with.
 See git-pull(1) for details.

     git pull <remote> <branch>

 Makefile:97: recipe for target 'prep-nightly' failed
 make: *** [prep-nightly] Error 1

 This can be traced to this:

 Because `make alpha` checked out a tag, `git pull` fails. We can detect a
 checkout tag with something like `git status | grep "HEAD detached"` and
 behave more intelligently.
