Create check-news Makefile target

Checking the correctness of the NEWS file syntax is an important part of the

Require newer python mock library

Older Python mock libraries do not provide MagicMock, which eases
mocking of complex objects quite a bit. As this is a build/test
dependency only, requiring a new version is OK (it's available via
easy_install).

Improve a bit Haskell library recommended versions

The hinotify library was missing any versions, and finding one that
works with ghc 6.12 (base 4.2.x) was not obvious. The

with the test-framework version, so fix that as well....
