Thanks for all the clean-up.
Since you've modified old NEWS, you'll
find that "make syntax-check" fails until you
reset the SHA1 of the old NEWS entries.
To do that, just run "make update-NEWS-hash".
That updates the SHA1 in cfg.mk.

ACK, assuming "make distcheck" (which does run syntax-check) still passes.
