Alright, time to turn to MacPorts 1.8.0 to resolve all these dependencies. Except xmlto (bug#) hung up the works in MacPorts. Thanks to lightning fast response from MacPorts I found I needed to upgrade libxml2 to 2.7.5 thus:
sudo port install libxml2
After that xmlto installs fine as does git. Hope that helps. Cheers.
