 I found building git 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
 reporting this.
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.
