Thanks Mark!

It would be nice to generate those from `git log` somehow... I know
dejagnu actually requires that the git log message is ChangeLog
formatted but that looks awful from a git perspective :-)

Ok, so it turns out the other problem I'm running into is that
detection of supported compiler warnings is not done with -Werror, so
configure thinks they're supported while in fact they're not, and
later on when the build is done with -Werror (for most targets) they
start failing since the options are unsupported...

I have a follow up fix, will send you another patch shortly.

This time with ChangeLog :-)
