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 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.
