Ahah. Thanks to Toke and Dave for the solution - using the "git:" format for the URL:

# cd /usr/lib                     # or some other useful place

# git clone git://github.com/richb-hanover/CeroWrtScripts.git

# ls /usr/lib/CeroWrtScripts/
LICENSE             betterspeedtest.sh  config-cerowrt.sh   networkhammer.sh
README.md           cerostats.sh        netperfrunner.sh    tunnelbroker.sh
