1. Should the build script require a clean just extracted from git copy?  In such case, should it exclude files like config_inc.php or fail when it finds them, because it is a development work area rather than a clean one for publishing.

Considering that the build scripts already provide a method for forcing a temporary/fresh git checkout for each build, I don't think we should be forcing *all* builds to happen this way.  Why prevent someone from being able to experiment with making builds from a local working copy if they want to test changes or build from an unofficial git repo?   I think the current practice of just stripping out files that shouldn't be part of a proper release is still the way to go.
