I just wanted to add, I have been using Adam's version for the last
couple of days without any issues. (The x86 variant.) The only problem
I had was when I went to install it using Steven's instructions:

When I went to untar it, I got errors trying to hardlink git.exe and
git-upload-archive.exe to git-receive-pack.exe in the /usr/bin
directory. (I had previously uninstalled git using setup-x86.exe, so
as to install it "clean".) I ended up running Windows cmd.exe and
using mklink /H to make the links.
