Re: arm-qnx-nto patch

Yes - just post the changes to the .am files.  Add a comment in the
ChangeLog entry along the liens of:

        * -whatever has changed-
        * Regenerated.

And leave out the diff of the .in file(s).  A similar rule applies to
auto-generated files like bfd-in2.h.

As to the patch itself, there are a couple of problems:

  * No ChangeLog entries.

  * The patch does not cope with an all targets build (ie one
    configured with --enable-targets=all).  This is because both
    elfarm-nabi.o and elfarm-qnxnabi.o define functions like
    bfd_elf32_arm_allocate_interworking_sections.  The solution is to
    only define these functions in elfarm-nabi.o and to include this
    file when building support for the bfd_elf32_{big|little}armqnx_vec.

  * No NEWS file entry for the new port.

I have taken care of these problems and checked your patch in.
