Tried 'brew install git' today (2/20/2012) and received the same error message.

Solution: Download XCode in the App Store, Install it. Open the XCode preferences > Downloads. Click on 'Install' next to the command line tools.

@zeisss thank you! I was pulling my hair out all night trying to figure this out. All you used to have to do is download Xcode and you were good to go. Not sure what has changed since December and now, February...

@awellis13: No problem. I searched long for this solution as well, so I left this hint somewhere for others to find. Seems like that worked :)

This should be added to the emergency instructions provided when the command 'brew install git' fails.

Why did they change this? Git came by default in the previous version... Anyway, thanks!

They repackaged Xcode as an App instead of a standalone installation into /Developer. Probably easy on their end to maintain. Wish command line tools were installed by default though.

Many thanks yet again...the command-line tools was a problem for me too.
