You are right. you don't need a pull immediately after a clone.  [and
if both petsc-dev and BuildSystem are cloned at the same time - they
should be in sync with each other]

But if you need to resync anytime after cloning - you have to do the
'pull -u' on both repos, at the same time - so that they are again in
sync with each other.

Perhaps we are misinterpriting the errors from the snippets sent
earlier.  Please send the complete logs [configure.log and make.log]
to petsc-maint so that we can diagnose the issue properly.
