This would probably be better suited on the zsh-users list, but you're
in the right vicinity. :)

We are not going to change the way that vcs_info works with respect to
this. If you got a wrapper that is incompatible with the way that git
works, use a "command" style to force the command used by vcs_info to
its full path name:

   % zstyle ':vcs_info:git:*:-all-' command =git
