Please, no. That would create a circular dependency between cURL and
Git. The circular dependencies are tricky to build on some platforms.
It also means anything that depends on cURL would also depend on Git.
iConv/GetText and Ncurses/Readline are bad enough...

Here are the recipes I use. It would be painful to lose them.
