I've never used git submodules before, so keep this in mind. Following 
the README instructions:

$ ls
binutils-gdb  COPYING  itcl  iwidgets  Makefile  README  testsuite  gdbtk    itk   libgui    patches   tcl     tk
$ git submodule foreach --recursive git pull
$ echo $?

[i.e., it did nothing]

What did work for me was:

$ git submodule init
Submodule 'binutils-gdb' (git:// 
registered for path 'binutils-gdb'
Submodule 'itcl' ( registered for path 
Submodule 'itk' ( registered for path 'itk'
Submodule 'tcl' ( registered for path 'tcl'
Submodule 'tk' ( registered for path 'tk'
$ git submodule update
Cloning into 'binutils-gdb'...

Receiving objects: 100% (700435/700435), 215.82 MiB | 4.81 MiB/s, done.

I have a bunch of follow-up comments to make. I'll try to get those down 
in email in the next few days.

Thank you for your work on this. It is nice to have some help.
