It should already be possible.  To skip that check, run:

make check gl_public_submodule_commit=

Given that libtool is often tested using temporary unprivileged login accounts on default (or almost default) OS footprints, it is definitely a bad thing if testing libtool expects an exotic tool like 'git'. Often it is possible to transfer files to the remote machine, but it is not possible to connect from that machine to the Internet due to firewall policies. Even if it is possible to access the Internet, it may be difficult to add more software packages to the remote machine.

Years ago we encountered a similar issues with cvs because the libtool 'make distcheck' target had added a dependency on cvs.
