git repo won't build for lack of source files?

Are you also building the required support libraries?

I have recently build 2.2.8 successfully using this set of support libs:

git checkout npth-1.5
git checkout libgpg-error-1.31
git checkout libgcrypt-1.8.2
git checkout libksba-1.3.5
git checkout libassuan-2.5.1
git checkout gnupg-2.2.8

then run the following commands in each of the lib folders (in the order
shown above):

./ --force
./configure --enable-maintainer-mode
make -j
make check
sudo make install

make check is optional, but if you want to be extra sure, you can also add
a  --enable-all-tests to the configure of gnupg (but not the others...)  It
doesn't take too long to build and check them all.
