I'd vote against it: As of now, I can perfectly do

export PATH=$PATH:/whereever/my/git/is

which would not work with this patch.

I take it to mean that you do not mind building but would want
to try it out before installing.

I'd like to not being forced to install git. Scenario: I have an SSH account on a remote machine. I am not root there, but I'd like to synchronize my work with git. I can not install git.

* Make git-init-db create an absolute minimum $GIT_DIR
  structure itself, if the template directory is not available,
  possibly with a warning.

This would be exactly what I'd like. Let git-init-db create .git/objects/[0-9a-f]{2}/, .git/refs/heads/, .git/refs/tags and .git/HEAD. Everything else is taken from the templates directory, if that exists. I would not warn if it does not.
