I would recommend doing 'make uninstall' with the 1.5.x source
first before installing 1.6.x.

Many git-foo commands were removed from $prefix/bin in 1.6.x,
so blindly installing 1.6.x will leave those files sitting
around which is not good.

BTW if you're using debian or fedora you can install the
git-core package and not have to worry about these details.

Good luck,
