FreeBSD git fatal: Unable to find remote helper for ‘https’

I just found out that git is not fully functional on my FreeBSD (11) box. It was installed from port (using portmaster git). I can clone a repo using SSH key, but not with HTTPS.

I’m not quite sure if it’s always been this way. Here is how to fix it:

1) Reinstall curl

# pkg remove curl
# portmaster curl

2) Reinstall git

# pkg remove git
# portmaster git

Why did I install git from port? Well, ‘cuz there is no binary package for FreeBSD 11 arm, which runs on my Raspberry Pi B+.
