​EEEKKKK!!!! I apologize for not seeing this sooner (forest for trees
problem?). Recompiling git will _not_ fix a damaged repository. Which is
what the above seems to be telling you. Have you done the command:

git fsck # check the integrity of the repository information

If not, please do so and post the results. This can take a long time,
depending on how big the repository is and how much history it contains.​ I
would guess (and that's all it is at this point) that either a file has
become corrupted somehow (hardware failure? software failure?) or has been
deleted improperly.
