I am a bit puzzled by your first error: /bin/sh: git: command not found
It seems, like you do not have git on your system. So how did you get 
PyMVPA? I guees you have not downloaded it with 'git clone 
git://github.com/PyMVPA/PyMVPA.git', right?

A brief search gave me the info, that git for some strange reason is not 
available per default on CentOS, and that even in the repos it might 
possibly not found, so maybe this is the reason for your error. What 
CentOS version are you running?

some links:

good luck,
