They are trivial to program in a handwritten makefile.

On topic, suckless programs usually make use of makefiles which are
hand-customized, just like the program settings (config.h). For bonus points,
use Plan9 mk.

For my own programs, I prefer djb redo[2], which uses simple shell scripts and
is better than GNU make[3].

About the Changelog/NEWS, they originate before the time of git and are
superseded by git log/git shortlog.
