Is it real to use rebar without git binary?

Hello all,

I'm looking on the rebar for the first day. And can't build Riak's deps on
a Linux machine with lack of git. I'm starving for a big help or docs about
the way rebar works with git. And it seems to me that there are close to no
way in using rebar without git installed.

ERROR: git describe --always --tags `git log -n 1 --pretty=format:%h .`
failed with error: 127 and output:
sh: git: command not found
sh: line 0: exec: git: not found

I've grabbed edown from the github by hands and even ``./rebar compile''-ed
it but rebar still want's to sniff its version number, yak...

Is it ever possible to accomplish it without git?
