[PATCH] build: fix automake error due to missing ChangeLog

From: Stefano Lattarini
Subject: [PATCH] build: fix automake error due to missing ChangeLog
Date: Fri, 20 Jan 2012 18:05:17 +0100

Apparently, Automake does not accept the '$(srcdir)/ChangeLog'
target in as a declaration that ChangeLog is
automatically generated (and thus does not need to exist at
automake time).  One has to use a *literal* 'ChangeLog' target.

Problem introduced in commit v2.68-118-g6ed5195 of 2012-01-17,
"maint: generate ChangeLog from git log".

* ($(srcdir)/ChangeLog): Renamed ...
(ChangeLog): ... to this.

I will push this shortly if there is no objection (as I think that
having a suboptimal patch is better than having broken bootstrap
on master).

Sorry for the mess-up,
