Updating to Git 1.7.10 on Mac OS X 10.7.3Edit

$ cd path/to/local/clone/of/git.git
$ git fetch
$ git tag -v v1.7.10
$ git checkout v1.7.10
$ NO_GETTEXT=1 make prefix=/usr/local
$ sudo env NO_GETTEXT=1 make prefix=/usr/local install quick-install-man

Note: the quick-install-man target requires a copy of the git-manpages repo to be cloned, without an explicit .git extension, at the same level as the checkout of git.git. In order to get the latest man pages I had to manually fetch and checkout the latest HEAD of the git-manpages repo.
