To compile current development BIRD source code from Git repository, you
also need Git (to download the source code) and Autoconf (to generate
the configure script and associated files using 'autoreconf' tool):
$ git clone git://git.nic.cz/bird.git

Note that build scripts for BIRD documentation expects 'nsgmls' from
