OK, I just committed that again.

The message should be visible from the 'make' output.

We can run that manually, if we really need to adjust the start point  
of the ChangeLog. Alioth's SVN service is not particularly fast, so if  
the UP_TO_VERSION hasn't changed, I don't think we want to be polling  
for it every time we build.

If this builds properly, I will merge it into the trunk.
