As bug #355605 states, git-subtree has been included into git. However, as of git-1.7.12-r2 it is in the contrib/ folder and thus does not get built by default. Am I missing any USE flag to get git-subtree built?

add subtree to the list of contrib modules
This patch adds subtree to the list of contrib modules that get installed into /usr/share/git/contrib. This will install the source of the module, the module executable and documentation itself still need to be installed from /usr/share/git/contrib/subtree.
The patch is against git-22.214.171.124, but should work for older ebuilds too.
Added in 1.8.0-r1. Also updated the rest of contrib.
