The easiest way in my humble opinion would be to install a script like
this into /mingw/bin/:

-- snip --

case "$1" in
        version="$(curl -V)" || exit
        version="$(echo "${version%% (*)*}" | tr . \ )"
        eval printf "%02d%02d%02d" ${version#curl }
        echo -lcurl
-- snap --

That way, upstream Git does not have anything to change (and we avoid
discussing five versions of essentially the same patch :-P).
