Hi Damien

I see the same behaviour. However, If the file is not tracked, then I
experience a different behaviour. If you, say, create a new git
repository with the OpenSSH source files and wants to start tracking
all files, then the makefiles will be ignored.

Toy example below

$ pwd
$ mkdir test_root test_root/test_subdir
$ cd test_root
$ git init
$ echo test >> test_subdir/Makefile
$ echo Makefile >> .gitignore
$ git add test_subdir/Makefile
The following paths are ignored by one of your .gitignore files:
Use -f if you really want to add them.

Or, in your OpenSSH repository, you can do

$ git rm --cached regress/unittests/Makefile
$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/master'.
Changes to be committed:
  (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage)

        deleted:    regress/unittests/Makefile

seeing that regress/unittests/Makefile does not appear as untracked.
