Thanks for the hint.

git-merge-changelog can also be found in wget's gnulib/modules directory.
I put this entry into wget/trunk/.git/config:
[merge "merge-changelog"]
        name = GNU-style ChangeLog merge driver
        driver = ../trunk/gnulib/modules/git-merge-changelog %O %A %B

At least the docs say, you have to create a .gitattributes within each 
directory containing a ChangeLog file.
$cat .gitattributes 
ChangeLog    merge=merge-changelog

BTW, for Debian+derivatives: It it part of the package 'gnulib', so you won't 
need a custom install, if you're gonna using git-merge-changelog with other 
projects as well.
