Yeah, it is definitely a problem on the remote system.

If I had to guess, I'd say it was ssh, the library is installed in a
non-standard place (e.g., because he built them as a regular user and
put them in his home directory), and LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not get set
properly by ssh for the incoming ssh session.

If that is the case, you can fix it with an entry in ~/.ssh/environment,
or by telling git that the remote side needs to do more than just run
git-upload-pack, like:

  git clone -u '. $HOME/.profile && git-upload-pack' ...

But I am just guessing. We need more information on how the remote
system is set up to really know.
