This is actually unlikely. PJPROJECT itself is an outside project[1]. A 
version exists in git by us because we added shared library support to 
it (which is now upstream). The git repo exists for now in case we need 
to make any other large changes. It may go away in the future and the 
instructions updated to just use pjproject from upstream.

I'd just use a specific released version of pjproject. I personally use 
the SVN version of pjproject to ensure that Asterisk can compile against 
it at all times. Provided you use the 2.x series then it's fine.
