It doesn't work on a PC without git or without network connection
because it needs to clone gnulib (although there is no gnulib folder

This is very unfortunate.  I am not sure if it would work if you cloned
gnulib on another computer and copied the gnulib folder into place since
it may still make subsequent git accesses.

It sounds to me like Igor wants/needs the release tarball.
Pulling from GIT and building is a maintainer problem.
If you are going to help maintain it, you need access to
maintainer stuff:  GIT, gnulib, the internet, etc.
It's "by design".
