Issues compiling git version

Thanks a lot...That did the trick!

One last thing, I got the following recommendations from someone on
ArchLinux AUR in order to build the package:

./ --force
./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --prefix=/usr
--libexecdir=/usr/lib/gnupg #$EXTRAOPTS

sed -i 's/doc, yes/doc, no/g'
autoreconf -fiv --force
LIBS=-llber ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --prefix=/usr
--libexecdir=/usr/lib/gnupg #$EXTRAOPTS

It works but is there a cleaner way to stay to the more official

The official instructions give me :
checking that generated files are newer than configure... done
checking that generated files are newer than configure... done
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: error: cannot find input file: `m4/'

Noticed the following during the build: warning: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE: two- and three-arguments forms
are deprecated.  For more info, see: warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated, and
its use is discouraged. You should use the Autoconf-provided 'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P'
macro instead, and use '$(MKDIR_P)' instead of '$(mkdir_p)'in your files.
parallel-tests: error: required file 'scripts/test-driver' not found
parallel-tests:   'automake --add-missing' can install 'test-driver'
kbx/ warning: 'INCLUDES' is the old name for 'AM_CPPFLAGS'
(or '*_CPPFLAGS')
Running autoconf --force ...
You may now run:
  ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-maintainer-mode
--enable-symcryptrun --enable-mailto --enable-gpgtar && make

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
Unknown `--is-lightweight' option
--help' for more information
configure: WARNING: 'missing' script is too old or missing
