Looking at the code, it appears that the URL adding comes from reading off
the Revision summary, and the version of log_accum.pl that we have writes
that summary only for changed files, not for new or removed files. The
subroutines were there, but they didn't do anything.
Version 1.85 of FreeBSD's log_accum.pl has that code - here's a diff to
apply it to our log_accum.pl.
Matt - can you apply this? This is untested, but I am relatively
confident it shouldn't damage anything. It would be worthwhile to move to
the FreeBSD versions of these scripts at some point, as they've gone
through a lot of cleanup.
