fetchgitPrivate does not support git-lfs

I’m trying to build a package using fetchgitPrivate however this repository has recently switched to use git-lfs for some assets. Fetching the repo results in following error message:

git-lfs filter-process: git-lfs: command not found
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

As I understand it, this is the error message, you get if the git-lfs binary is not in PATH when “git clone”.

Does anyone managed to get fetchgitPrivate (and I guess it applies to fetchgit as well) working? I already tried to fix the fetchgit package but didn’t manage to pull it of due to my lack of deeper understanding.
