Well we could add something like this in the Changelog:

- make configure select the input/output devices using

otherwise we could rename 'APIChanges' -> 'InterfaceChanges' and fill
it not only with the API changes, but also with the
configuration/build and ff* tools interface changes (or alternatively
we could have a separated file for that, but that looks overkill).

I have a slight preference for the last proposal, after all the
Changelog is more used for enumerating the features added/dropped
rather than the interface changes.
