The command in the Makefile is:
git clone git://git.freesmartphone.org/fso-makefile.git common
(you're missing a .git on the end of the URL, but since you'd get a
different error message if you were really using that command I'll
assume it's a typo).

I'm assuming that's why you're using http:// instead of git://

No idea. When I try the same I get:

So it seems that either http:// access is not supported on that repo on
git.freesmartphone.org or Mickey has to do some magic there to enable it
or maybe the URL is different for http:// access vs git:// access ...
