How you make: copying "out of source"? Copying the current contents of your 
git working tree? Well - then this is exactly what the checkout prepare.

You can checkout your git working tree to state of 2012-04-01, then copy 
current contents of your working tree (precisely sources in state of 
2012-04-01) "out of source" and build.
