“git svn” command fails with error “git: 'svn' is not a git command. See 'git –help'.”

I am trying to execute this command on my redhat 6.5 box and it throws the error “git: ‘svn‘ is not a git command. See ‘git –help’.” I have git 1.7.1 installed on this box. Please help.

git svn clone http://yourcompany.com/path/to/svn/project-abc project-abc

Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
