It just so happens that I regenerated the whole gnulib.git repository
from cvs and pushed the result a few minutes ago.  Normally, I let an
incremental process do the job automatically, but somehow there came
to be a branch, and hence lots of ugly merge deltas.  Now they're gone.

That also removed the popcount files.

Of course, just after pushing, I noticed that there is now too much
hierarchy in the git tree: a "clone" gives you a top-level gnulib
directory, with everything we're used to under that.  It'll take a
couple hours to regenerate it properly.
