A quick look at '' suggests that this message occurs when you
haven't cloned from git and the mentioned file does not exist.

Did you download as an archive from github rather than using 'git clone'?

As Mike already mentioned in the other thread, please try to get the
sources using one of the "official ways". [1] also mentions a way to
start by downloading an official tarball, should 'git clone' not work.
Please try using that one and the steps described there rather than
using some tarball from github.
