[MonoDevelop] Recent build not reflected in Help-About

Over the course of the day I noticed strange errors that led me to believe
that either the build or the install was bad (or both). So I deleted and
recloned monodevelop from git and now it doesn't build at all:

git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/mono/monodevelop.git
cd monodevelop
./configure --prefix=/usr
 ... Output of git submodule update, then ...
Making all in external
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/calder/tmp/monodevelop/main/external'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/calder/tmp/monodevelop/main/external'
Making all in .
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/calder/tmp/monodevelop/main'
git failed
make[2]: *** [build/bin/buildinfo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/calder/tmp/monodevelop/main'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/calder/tmp/monodevelop/main'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

This is an Ubuntu 12.04 system. I build MD once or twice a month so this
appears to be a new error.
