This patch has been on hold for a while now, but I don't see a good
reason for that.  Eric, if you're still thinking of a stable release,
but don't have time, then please outline your plans for that; maybe
someone else has time to do that grunt work then.  In any case it
shouldn't need to hold up this patch, as it has only a small chance
of actually introducing regressions for working code.

So, here's a rebase, including s/GCCGO/GOC/g as discussed before,
adjusting copyright years, and adding a NEWS entry.  I've tested
it without gccgo in sight, and a distcheck, and added a missing
$(srcdir)/ entry in tests/

Any reasons against pushing this once a test with gccgo installed
passes as well?
