You can use a daily snapshot tarball instead, from
http://www.libssh2.org/snapshots/ You don't need git to get diagnostics, just to
get the absolute latest source code. The configure diagnostics are automatically
logged to config.log, and the build logs are shown by default to stdout.

This is just basic security practise. You don't want arbitrary source code that
you run to have full access to the system (although, you really have to have
some trust in it if you're going to run it later), nor do you want to mess up
the installation with an errant install or configuration change without
checking what the code tries to do first.
