It works!
I removed git from the path variable. I've had the path to Git\bin and
Git\cmd added.

I've got Git version 1.9.0. But as I remember, I've added the path for
myself manually, because I guessed that might fix the build problem with
wireshark, as it's remarked as "missing" when running CMake.

- Wireshark build instructions are correct

For myself:
- Read the docs and double check each point
- Don't add unnecccesary path variables
- Try to understand how CMake works

Thanks for your help Graham

Good news.

I've just created a change (https://code.wireshark.org/review/#/c/13008/) to make CMake detect non-Cygwin bash and halt if so.  Hopefully that will help others in the future.
