Hi, this is what happened to me today:

In file included from protocol/filter.cpp:4:0:
./v8/v8engine.h:8:10: fatal error: v8.h: No such file or directory
 #include <v8.h>
compilation terminated.

Thanks for this, we'll shortly be pushing updated compilation instructions for 2.0 alpha 5. It changed because of the incorporation of the V8 JavaScript engine (as you can see from the error you encountered).

2.0 alpha 5 is when v8 was introduced?  If so, How does one clone a specific version of the Multichain repository?
e.g.- 2.0 alpha 4

Thank you,

You can look in the Github repo to see older versions:

While we haven't officially "tagged" releases you can cross-references dates against the release dates of each 2.0 alpha. Usually the full merge into Github of a release's source code is on the day or a day or two after the release.
