Hi,

I just fetched libtool from git://git.sv.gnu.org/libtool.git, but running
'./bootstrap' failed with these messages:
   bootstrap: running: make bootstrap-deps ...
   bootstrap: running: autoreconf --symlink --install .
   Makefile.am: error: required file './ChangeLog' not found
   autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

The bootstrap succeeded after creating an empty ChangeLog, but still did not
convert the output from 'git log' into a ChangeLog as I would have expected.
Running
   ./gnulib/build-aux/gitlog-to-changelog --since=2011-01-01 > ChangeLog
then did the job.

Regards
Peter Breitenlohner <peb@HIDDEN>
