[vlc-devel] Problem with git on Mac OS X

I'm trying to compile VLC latest from git on OS X 10.5 Leopard with  
the latest iPhone SDK.  I'm able to successfully pull vlc from git  
using the instructions on the wiki, but when I try to bootstrap the  
extras/contrib folder, I get the following error:

+ git help
+ echo 'You do not have a Git client in your PATH.'
You do not have a Git client in your PATH.
+ test -z ''
+ set +x

* If you are building contribs for a release build of VLC *
* Please run CONTRIBS_RELEASE=sexy ./bootstrap            *

I have git installed in /sw/bin (through Fink, obviously).  I have  
tried adding /sw/bin to the PATH and soft-linking all of the git*  
files in /sw/bin to /usr/bin, but it always tells me that I don't have  
git installed.  What am I doing wrong here?
