*How* are you trying to install rabbit? Are you using a package manager, or compiling from source (I assume this one) or some other way?

That's quite odd, but nonetheless you won't be able to build using make without having git installed.

There have been changes to the build system, but the requirement to use git when compiling from source is not new.
