I will soon push the following change, followed by another that will add
this line

  (unset CDPATH) >/dev/null 2>&1 && unset CDPATH

near the top of gnulib-tool.  That CDPATH-unsetting change is the accepted
approach to rendering "cd" sensible, i.e., making it emit nothing
to stdout.  Thus, there is no need to redirect stdout for every single
use of the "cd" shell builtin.

Gary, I suggest that you avoid using shallow clones of gnulib.  Surely
you have at least one full clone, and with that, you can reference that
clone from any subsequent bootstrap, thus avoiding the network/disk hit
of cloning from scratch.

Also, for subsequent commits, please follow our convention of adding
an entry in ChangeLog that is equivalent to your commit log (you forgot
that for the commit I am partially reverting).
