The default Git build doesn't use autotools.  See INSTALL for more

What version of gmake is available for Plan 9?  I wouldn't expect
Git's build system to be super demanding as far as recent "make"
features go.

So I wonder whether it would make sense to do something like the

- add entries to config.mak.uname to set the compiler e.g. to 6c
  when appropriate

- make appropriate compatibility fixes in git-compat-util.h

- add any necessary helpers to the compat/ directory

- use gmake to build

Would that work?
