No i don't think so, it is already in the diff you download from GNATS.
I suspect it is a bug in getpatch, or one of the functions it calls, in
query-pr.cgi. If you look at the patch in the PR with edit-pr (vi or
vim) and use :set list you will see that the newline is there. This is
why I emailed Shaun, so let's wait what he has to say.

BTW this does not only affect distinfo, it's always the last file of the
patch, so there are a lot of patch-* files which have a missing newline
at the end.
