mads hat a failing git test while trying to fix the remaining
mercurial test cases.

so i tried to just update git and got (after setting GIT_USE_PROXY   =
1 to ~/.garrc):

rupert at build8s:~/mgar/pkg/git/trunk
$ gmake package
[===== NOW BUILDING: git-1.6.4 =====]
ginstall -d cookies/global
ginstall -d download
 ==> Verifying for installed package CSWemacs: installed
 ==> Verifying for installed package CSWautoconf: installed
        [prerequisite] complete for git.
 ==> Grabbing download/git.git
        ==> Trying gitrepo//git.git
gmake[1]: *** [gitrepo//git.git] Error 1
        ==> Trying git//git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git

fatal: protocol error: bad line length character
gmake[1]: *** [git//git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git] Error 128
(!!!) Failed to download download/git.git!
gmake: *** [download/git.git] Error 1

mads and me were both using mike's bashrc. and on google there are
hints that this might be related to a shell setting. so i was
wondering how ben did get this to work?
