Why do either?

The sane way to do things is to just

    cd
    mkdir src
    cd src
    git clone git://github.com/gitster/git
    cd git
    make
    make install

all as a regular user. It will install in your $(HOME)/bin, so just
put that first in the path. No need to fight rpm, no need to fight
your scripts, you should be pretty much all done.
