I've been trying a GUB build today. It's failed rather strangely. At
 first I got:

Command barfed: cd /home/gub/NewGub/gub/downloads/lilypond/git && git
 fetch git://

 fatal: Unable to look up (port 9418) (Name or service

Command barfed: cd /home/gub/NewGub/gub/downloads/lilypond/git && git

 I thought that might be down to a network problem, so I tried the
network and it looked OK so I ran the make again and this time I got:

 NameError: global name 'barf' is not defined

 Any thoughts of where to go from here?

"barf" sounds like an intentionally undefined function, "called" in
order to get a backtrace.

When I learnt programming, long long ago in the time of punch cards, my
mentor used "CALL HUGO" for this purpose.  Indeed this triggered a
_runtime_ error on the Fortran 77 compiler of the Cyber 175.

I guess this is the same trick, just for Python.  So now we have a
backtrace.  We just need to figure out what reason "barf" is getting
called for.  What's in line 707 of ?

git head is invalid?

   def _update_workdir_shallow (self, destdir):
       branch = self.branch # branch is empty?
       branch = 'master'
       HEAD = self.checksum ()
       if HEAD == 'invalid':
