Installig git on CentOS 6 fails with Requires: libcurl.so.3()(64bit)

Today I had to install git on one server running on CentOS 6, but yum install git returned the following error:

Error: Package: git-1.7.12.4-1.el5.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge)
Requires: libcurl.so.3()(64bit)

To fix this bug you have to run this command:

and then confirm the removal of that package:
