Thanks for the tip Jeff. "config.mak.autogen" is created in the git
compile only when you do a "./configure". Mine had the bad reference
to "gar" in it due to the following.
It was caused because my path had a reference to a non-related "gar"
executable (some internal command). I saw the compile trying to
execute it and removed it from my path. Doing a "make clean"
afterwards didn't remove the "config.mak.autogen" which had mistakenly
thought that I was using "gar" and not "ar".
When I fixed my path to not include the company specific "gar" and
started with a fresh untar it worked perfectly. It also didn't make a
"config.mak.autogen" since that isn't what is recommended to do in the
git docs for install.
This is closed due to my own user error.
# git Makefile configuration, included in main Makefile
# config.mak.autogen. Generated from config.mak.in by configure.
