Well, none of the man pages work (which is an annoyance, but not the end of
the world). I've set up an env var for GIT_EXEC_PATH and GIT_TEMPLATE_PATH
to point to the correct locations, but when I try `git clone`, I get the
[eric git]$ git clone https://e...@git.assembla.com/myproj.git
Cloning into 'myproj'...

In all fairness, I do not know if that is due to my package being installed
under my home dir vs standard dirs, or if there is a firewall issue/etc,
but I can confirm that a clone to that repo works properly on another
system. Similarly, I can confirm that I can d/l data from other https
sites without issues.

Sure - I was trying to avoid that effort, so was hoping that there would be
