Yes, apparently you are right. The same happens with openSuSE 11.2, which has git version 188.8.131.52-3.3 (I just updated it).
It replies: error: unknown option `dirty'.
OpenSuSE 11.3 has the 1.7.1 version which supports it.
If any of the developers are reading this, is it possible to change the parameters used in version.sh?
If not, it's not a big problem anyway.
Thank you for all your answers,
