Thanks for the hint -- see for how it is done in libidn2, i.e.:

        git2cl > ChangeLog

        ! git tag -l $(PACKAGE)-$(VERSION) | grep $(PACKAGE) > /dev/null
        $(MAKE) ChangeLog distcheck

The idea is that on 'make release', the ChangeLog is re-generated from
git commit logs and will be included in the tarball.  This broke because
ChangeLog had been accidentally been committed at some point.

I believe so, fixed now.
