We're already using gnu extensions in the makefile, and the make target
is called locale-gnu-pot for that reason.

Erik, the requirement is GNU xgettext >= 0.12. I think it's fine to
require at least that version to be able to support --msgid-bug-address
for xgettext and --no-fuzzy-matching for msgmerge. The last option is
really useful. The fuzzy message merging has never worked well for me.
  An autoconf test would be nice, but since it's only used by
developers, I don't think we must have it.
