How to disable docs when building Git from sources

Hi Everyone,

I'm working on a low-resource dev-board. It is missing a lot of
utilities to save space. I'm building Git 2.20 from sources. Make is
failing due to '/bin/sh: 1: msgfmt: not found'. I don't cross-compile
because that's a bigger pain in the ass than waiting for the native
build to finish.

I ran './configure --help' but I don't see a way to disable the docs.
In the past I tired --disable-docs but it had no effect.

How do I disable the docs?
