build: Drop ChangeLog and INSTALL, and silence Automake warnings
The ChangeLog generation was broken forever because it used $(top_srcdir)/missing, not $(top_srcdir)/config/missing. Including the Git log in tarballs isn't particularly useful. People are better off using the Git repository directly. A nice side-effect of switching Automake to "foreign" is that it silences these warnings: src/Makefile.am:563: warning: shell $(GLIB_COMPILE_RESOURCES: non-POSIX variable name src/Makefile.am:563: (probably a GNU make extension) The loss of INSTALL, caused by "foreign", isn't a big problem because the upcoming Meson port would have rendered it obsolete anyway. Users can easily look up how to build a Autotools-based project.
