I found building git 188.8.131.52 on NetBSD/i386 4.0.1 to be a fairly easy
thing. In off-list email, I was prompted to drop a note to this PR
Checking my git install, I find cd -P in only one place, that being
git-sh-setup. This might have caused trouble if I were trying to set
up a git repository on my machine, which I wasn't; while possibly a
problem, it did not lead to "a totally non-functional git".
Perhaps breaking setup is enough for dmcmahill to consider git totally
non-functional. Or perhaps this is a version difference.
It has been a while, but I think the first thing I tried was to clone a
repository and it failed with the 'cd -P' thing. I can't recall now if
there were 2 spots or just the 1 spot that had 'cd -P'. As near as I
can tell this is the first operation that most users probably need to do
so I considered it quite fatal.
Anyway, thanks for attaching the patches. I've just been way to buried
to spend the small amount of time needed to fix this.
