On a significantly slower machine I got:
real    0m46.690s
user    0m21.892s
sys     0m0.668s

Notice the huge difference in the amount of sys time used, which is
probably the cause of the slowness of the resolving phase. I think you
must either be using a different, inefficient git version (though I
don't know whether there's been one which would behave like that) or
there's something wrong with your machine which makes the filesystem
operations used very slow.
