The depcomp change is not a problem, but I'd rather not make any
gratuitous change to mkinstalldirs on the branch.  The reason is
that both automake and gettextize will install mkinstalldirs in
a package, and when the installed files are not identical users
complain about spurious CVS diff each time they reconfigure their
package (yes, this has happened).

Also you have added your ChangeLog entry in _two_ different places.

Too bad your whitespace filter doesn't also edit the comments :)
