`fancy-splash-screens' used to set it to the output of
`startup-echo-area-message'. You removed that in revision 1.415 of
startup.el (it was introduced in 1.215 by Gerd Moellmann).
This is the ChangeLog entry:
2006-09-14 Richard Stallman <address@hidden>
* startup.el (fancy-splash-text): Change text to improve alignment.
(fancy-splash-screens): Don't set non-standard tab width.
Bind cursor-type temporarily, and make it easy to patch to
preserve the splash buffer.
(normal-splash-screen, fancy-splash-tail): Spell out "Meta-x".
(fancy-splash-screens): Display echo-area message explicitly.
Don't set fancy-splash-help-echo.
