Please don't do this, it will drive you insane. There is a *lot* of complication lurking under the surface of what seems like a trivial problem. I'd just install git on all your machines. Even if you've got no compiler, there's probably a binary package available for your OS. And if there isn't, build it on a machine on which you *do* have a compiler, and then install it on the one that doesn't.
