When building from git, the './bootstrap' script should be used
(it is similar to but more elaborate than just 'autogen.sh' or
'autoreconf -if').
Running 'bootstrap' will also create the INSTALL file.

This is explained in README-hacking file (since building directly from
git is considered more advanced, e.g. for 'hackers').

I do notice that the plain README file does refer to the non-existing
INSTALL file (which does exist if built from tarball).

I'll add a small patch to improve it (leaving this bug open until I do).
