Correct git clone and build instructions?

I'm having trouble finding accurate git clone and build instructions
on the wiki. When trying to run in the xserver tree it
complained of "error: must install xorg-macros". Is the best way to
just go through and clone these one by one until the dependencies are
met? I suspected it's just the beginning of a long chain of hairy
dependences that might be worthy of emailing the list first.

Is there a tool like the android "repo" or perhaps a method to pull
down the various git trees via git submodule? Or just README that
contains the recommended order of building and installing?
