Yes, you should uninstall the git you currently have by using
'make uninstall'.  After you've done that, download the
latest code and install it.

It's important that you use the git 1.5.x code to uninstall
it since that's the version that you installed initially.

If you have trouble uninstalling then you can probably cheat
and simply:

        $ ls $(which git)-*
        $ rm $(which git)-*

prior to your new install.

Have fun,
