Sorry for the annoyance.

It is tracked by bug#66305:

    bug#66305: Error with recursive git checkout
    Guillaume Le Vaillant <>

The root of the issue is:

        bug#65924: git searches coreutils and util-linux commands in PATH
        Maxim Cournoyer <>
        Wed, 13 Sep 2023 14:00:09 -0400

which hits the series ba21eeb565..811b249397:

    f651a35969 build: Add dependency on Git.

A patch is floating around and will be merged soon. :-)

Hope that helps,
