No, as I recall the Git configuration was made optional because some developers objected to autogen.sh automatically setting transfer.fsckObjects in the Git configuration. I do not know the basis for these objections.

autogen.sh reflects a compromise among various viewpoints. Lots of people (including me) don't particularly like it in its current form, which is a common property of compromises.
