If you do not have git installed, you could still get the latest
snapshot of pkg_add_it via the Cgit repo. [1]

Currently the latest version of the program is tagged as RELEASE_1_3,
so just go to [1] and get a compressed snapshot of the program,
then extract and compile it.

I'm planning to submit a PR to update the port soon, but before that I
still need to finish a few things.
