There are various ways to install Git on OSX. Some use the "official"
installer from git-scm.com, others use some package manager like homebrew,
Fink or Macports. They all will install Git differently, and it ends up
with what your $PATH looks like.
So, in what way did you install the different versions?
What does your $PATH variable look like?
What do the following commands output?
/usr/local/git/bin/git --version # this is where the official installer
goes, I think
/usr/local/bin/git --version # this is where homebrew would put it, I think
Once you figure out which version you want to keep, you should use the
respective uninstallers to get rid of the other ones.
