Yeah, I should switch to using build.sh to do my pulls, but I've had my own
script since before that was added, so never needed to change.  I guess this
is more incentive to do so.

The other thing I needed to do, was to add to $HOME/.gitconfig:

[url "http://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/"]
     insteadOf = "git://anongit.freedesktop.org/"

because from behind the firewall at work http proxying is trivial, ssh is not
hard, but also not fast, and direct git is just best avoided, but the git 
submodules list the git://anongit..../ form of url's.
