    Log Message:
    Update to version  The base package now depends on devel/p5-Error;
    this ensures that git never has to install its own copy, thereby
    avoiding future conflicts with devel/p5-Error.  Plus, the pkgsrc
    version is newer.

    While here, set PKG_SYSCONFSUBDIR=git and explicitly specify sysconfdir
    in CONFIGURE_ARGS.  Remove trailing slash from GITCOREDIR.

    Long list of changes since 1.5.6:

    Fixes since v1.5.6.3

    * Various commands could overflow its internal buffer on a platform
       with small PATH_MAX value in a repository that has contents with
       long pathnames.

    * There wasn't a way to make --pretty=format:%<> specifiers to honor
       .mailmap name rewriting for authors and committers.  Now you can with
       %aN and %cN.

    * Bash completion wasted too many cycles; this has been optimized to be
       usable again.

    * Bash completion lost ref part when completing something like "git show

    * "git-cvsserver" did not clean up its temporary working area after
       annotate request.

    * "git-daemon" called syslog() from its signal handler, which was a

    * "git-fetch" into an empty repository used to remind that the fetch will
        be huge by saying "no common commits", but this was an unnecessary
        noise; it is already known by the user anyway.

    * "git-http-fetch" would have segfaulted when pack idx file retrieved
       from the other side was corrupt.

    * "git-index-pack" used too much memory when dealing with a deep delta

    * "git-mailinfo" (hence "git-am") did not correctly handle in-body [PATCH]
       line to override the commit title taken from the mail Subject header.

    * "git-rebase -i -p" lost parents that are not involved in the history
       being rewritten.

    * "git-rm" lost track of where the index file was when GIT_DIR was
       specified as a relative path.

    * "git-rev-list --quiet" was not quiet as advertised.

    Contains other various documentation fixes.

    Fixes since v1.5.6.2

    * Setting core.sharerepository to traditional "true" value was supposed
       to make the repository group writable but should not affect permission
       for others.  However, since 1.5.6, it was broken to drop permission
       for others when umask is 022, making the repository unreadable by others.

    * Setting GIT_TRACE will report spawning of external process via

    * Using an object with very deep delta chain pinned memory needed for
       extracting intermediate base objects unnecessarily long,
       leading to excess memory usage.

    * Bash completion script did not notice '--' marker on the command
       line and tried the relatively slow "ref completion" even when
       completing arguments after one.

    * Registering a non-empty blob racily and then truncating the working
       tree file for it confused "racy-git avoidance" logic into thinking
       that the path is now unchanged.

    * The section that describes attributes related to git-archive were placed
       in a wrong place in the gitattributes(5) manual page.

    * "git am" was not helpful to the users when it detected that the committer
       information is not set up properly yet.

    * "git clone" had a leftover debugging fprintf().

    * "git clone -q" was not quiet enough as it used to and gave object count
       and progress reports.

    * "git clone" marked downloaded packfile with .keep; this could be a
       good thing if the remote side is well packed but otherwise not,
       especially for a project that is not really big.

    * "git daemon" used to call syslog() from a signal handler, which
       could raise signals of its own but generally is not reentrant.  This
       was fixed by restructuring the code to report syslog() after the handler

    * When "git push" tries to remove a remote ref, and corresponding
       tracking ref is missing, we used to report error (i.e. failure to
       remove something that does not exist).

    * "git mailinfo" (hence "git am") did not handle commit log messages in a
       MIME multipart mail correctly.


      * "git-shell" accepts requests without a dash between "git" and
        subcommand name (e.g. "git upload-pack") which the newer client will
        start to make sometime in the future.

    Fixes since v1.5.6.1

    * "git clone" from a remote that is named with url.insteadOf setting in
       $HOME/.gitconfig did not work well.

    * "git describe --long --tags" segfaulted when the described revision was
       tagged with a lightweight tag.

    * "git diff --check" did not report the result via its exit status

    * When remote side used to have branch 'foo' and git-fetch finds that now
       it has branch 'foo/bar', it refuses to lose the existing remote tracking
       branch and its reflog.  The error message has been improved to suggest
       pruning the remote if the user wants to proceed and get the latest set
       of branches from the remote, including such 'foo/bar'.

    * "git reset file" should mean the same thing as "git reset HEAD file",
       but we required disambiguating -- even when "file" is not ambiguous.

    * "git show" segfaulted when an annotated tag that points at another
       annotated tag was given to it.

    * Optimization for a large import via "git-svn" introduced in v1.5.6 had a
       serious memory and temporary file leak, which made it unusable for
       moderately large import.

    * "git-svn" mangled remote nickname used in the configuration file

    Fixes since v1.5.6

    * Last minute change broke loose object creation on AIX.

    * (performance fix) We used to make $GIT_DIR absolute path early in the
       programs but keeping it relative to the current directory internally
       gives 1-3 per-cent performance boost.

    * bash completion knows the new --graph option to git-log family.

    * git-diff -c/--cc showed unnecessary "deletion" lines at the context

    * git-for-each-ref ignored %(object) and %(type) requests for tag

    * git-merge usage had a typo.

    * Rebuilding of git-svn metainfo database did not take rewriteRoot
       option into account.

    * Running "git-rebase --continue/--skip/--abort" before starting a
       rebase gave nonsense error messages.
