Message:

Try to clarify dependencies for usbutils

wget is recommended for building (used in the instructions)
git is required if running autogen.sh on the github tarball.
the kernel tarball has teh necessary files and autogen.sh is not
needed. Also, if usbhid-dump is not needed, git is not needed either.
