npm install fails if git isn't in the path

A couple of dependencies refer to git-based locations, which means git needs to be in the path to download them.

To avoid this roadblock, we can refer to the GitHub release packages, instead.

Added in #43055.

Build Tools: Don't use git for package installs.

While NPM supports installing packages from git locations, this requires git to be in the path, which won't necessarily be true, particularly on Windows.

We can download the release versions for these packages, instead.

Fixes #47916.
