I am built from another git worktree which caused the problem.  Will be
fixed for the next release.



    build: Fix ChangeLog building for builds from other worktrees.
    * (gen-ChangeLog): Test for existance of ".git" regardless
    on whether it is a file or directory.
    git worktree create a plain file ".git" and not a ".git" directory.
    Thus we can't check for the existance of a directory.
