Good guess.  The server either doesn't have git, or it does and it  
isn't in "the usual places".  If the server doesn't have git, you can  
(a) ask for it, or (b) install it yourself, under your own account.

Why would the server need git?  Because your laptop is not merely  
downloading files - it is invoking git commands on the server to make  
a pack for you, and more.
