The very first patch in the da/darwin series in "next" is one possible fix.

See 29de20504e9790785fe1698300755323f74972aa

    Makefile: fix default regex settings on Darwin

    t0070-fundamental.sh fails on Mac OS X 10.8:

        $ uname -a
        Darwin lustrous 12.2.0 Darwin Kernel Version 12.2.0:
        Sat Aug 25 00:48:52 PDT 2012;
        root:xnu-2050.18.24~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

        $ ./t0070-fundamental.sh -v
        fatal: regex bug confirmed: re-build git with NO_REGEX=1

    Fix it by using Git's regex library.

Does that patch also fix this issue?

Karsten, you mentioned that compiling without regex support fixes it for you.
Does the above commit in git.git's "next" branch fix it too?

If so, I think it would be worth merging this early part into a "maint" release.
