Debian packaging fixes for 0.99.4:

- Add a debian/changelog entry.
- Split gitk off to its own package;
  it needs tk installed, but nothing else does.
- Refer to GPL properly, don't install COPYING.
- Fix maintainer.
- Use dh_movefiles instead of dh_install;
  we don't want to list everything *except* gitk.

More Lintian warnings (not fixed by this patch):

W: git-core: binary-without-manpage git-LOTS
W: git-tk: binary-without-manpage gitk

Debian *really* dislikes exec tricks:
E: git-tk: shell-script-fails-syntax-check ./usr/bin/gitk

git-parse-remote is not an executable script and therefore
does *not* belong in /usr/bin:
W: git-core: executable-not-elf-or-script ./usr/bin/git-parse-remote

Do we need any newer features of diff? If not => drop from Depends:.
E: git-core: depends-on-essential-package-without-using-version depends: diff
