Oh.. sorry for mentioning 'make uninstall' since I now
realize that the 'uninstall' target doesn't exist.
The rm $(which git)-* thing should definitely do the trick,
You shouldn't ever have to worry about uninstalling stuff
as long as the installation layout doesn't change in the
future (which it likely won't), so this tip really only
applies to the 1.5.x to 1.6.x upgrade.
