At some point I'd like to update the hooks via "make", but was holding off until I have more confidence that issues like this related to different development environments are fixed. 

Alternatively, one could also use symlinks in .git to point to the files
in the lustre build directory. It's kind of a hack, but it keeps the
hooks up to date. And that way, the lustre build process doesn't have
to muck with the user's .git directory.
