X2 box, i did the following steps to pull in the source code as
i did not want to use the Makefile.

# cd /usr
# mkdir src
# cd src
# git init
# git remote add origin git://git.dragonflybsd.org/dragonfly.git
# git pull origin HEAD

Is this the recommended approach ?

No. Just use git clone git://... src

Additionally, when i try to view the 'remote' branches
# git branch -r
there are none seen.

Yes, because you only pulled master.

Is this something to be worried about ?

run a "git remote update" to get all.

On another laptop, i pulled in the code (couple of months ago)
# git clone -o chlamydia git://chlamydia.fs.ei.tum.de/dragonfly.git

followed by periodic
# git pull

When, i try to view the remote branches, Git shows it as,
# git branch -r


What could i be missing here ?
