git submodule init
(maybe with --recursive, don't know whether it's needed)

This command can be used if you cloned the repository and forgot the
--recursive. (*) The submodule init will then clone the submodule
repositories and check out the appropriate version.


(*) This actually happened to me a couple of times. I clone the
repository. Did my changes and when I tried to compile it complained
that I didn't have binpac....
