    Make make-dist more automatic · 38fb5f4d

    Simplify make-dist maintenance by having it generate its
    list of files more automatically.  Put the list of distributed
    files into a file MANIFEST that can be used in the unusual
    situations when you’re making a distribution without having
    access to a Git repository.
    * make-dist (top_level_ChangeLog): Now nonempty if the
    distribution tarball will contain a ChangeLog, instead of
    being nonempty when a ChangeLog is requested, Git is present
    and a readable ChangeLog exists.  The new interpretation makes
    the script a bit easier to follow.
    (possibly_non_vc_files, info_files, mkdir_verbose)
    (file_to_skip, MANIFEST_subdir_sed, tempsubdirs):
    New variables.
    (MANIFEST): Update and use this file, which now records what
    files are distributed.
    (top_level, subdir, files, file): Remove.
