I think you meant

$ make NEEDS_LIBICONV=YesPlease NO_CURL=YesPlease install

there, Jakub.

Jorma, since the Makefile has no ideas on state, it only notices that 
some files it needs to make a complete install with the parameters 
you're passing it when also passing 'install' are missing, it tries to 
build them, but without the NEEDS_LIBICONV and NO_CURL flags. Pass them 
both when doing normal 'make' and when doing 'make install' and you'll 
be fine. You might also want to check if your distribution provides a 
pre-compiled package. If that's the case, you should be able to get away 
with something easy such as

	$ apt-get install git


	$ yum install git

Good luck
