Hola fire,

The git website only has Linux/OSX instructions, but the source
install instructions there do not include GTK or other X11
requirements. They might be assumed because on another page it says
git-gui and gitk are included (https://git-scm.com/downloads/guis).
Does the Makefile have a way of not building these parts of git?
