I don't have a RHEL 5 installation handy; are all of these prerequisites
reasonable, or is git 1.6.4 a bit strong of a pre-req?  If the latter,
then I can further patch gnulib's bootstrap to fall back gracefully to a
use of the older 'git clone --reference' instead of 'git submodule update
--init --reference'.  Are there any other tools that we should be adding
into the prereq list, now that gnulib's bootstrap does a good job of
aborting early if a development tool is insufficient for building from a
git snapshot?
