On this system, $(SHELL) seems to be Bourne shell (/bin/sh), which
stumbles over the line

  for lc in ;

in git.mk if $(DOC_LINGUAS) is unset.

It should help to run ./configure like:

CONFIG_SHELL=/path/to/bash ./configure [...]

About ksh I wouldn't be so sure, pdksh seems to parse it just fine but a
test on Solaris 10 /bin/ksh wasn't successful just now.
