Apparently it only takes two weeks of GitLab reviews for Weston for me
to forget that I need to pass --compose to git-send-email.

Patch 1/5 is unchanged since it was sent out as part of a two-part
'autotools fixes' series before the release. Patch 2/5 has had
indentation fixed, as pointed out by Peter. Patch 3/5 has had the
changes listed above. Patches 4/5 and 5/5 have had manpage build and
installation fixed.

I think this should basically be good to go now.
