I eventually figured it out with help from some kind #boost IRC people.
But you should mention in the guide that one needs to get the
"Git-1.**.exe" download. As the rest are for doing development of Git
itself. And in case anyone is curious that install contains:

* Approximately 72 executables, including: bash, perl, tcl, tk, ssh,
bison, bzip2, vim, rxvt, tar, and many more.

* 88 DLLs

* A bunch of help files, as HTML, which is good I guess. But I would
have preferred having the option to not install them.

* A total of 2,578 files in 222 directories.

For a total install size of 172MB, and then adding the 18MB for
TurtoiseGit, makes for a 190MB footprint.
