I never used it, but try git-filter-branch should do the job:
git filter-branch --tree-filter ´rm filename´ HEAD
It's very powerful, read the man page for more info.
NOTE WELL: removing one file in the middle of the history is guaranteed
to alter the sha1's of all the subsequent commits. This happens because
of git's fundamental design, and can be seen as a security feature to
prevent people from tampering with the history.
