Funny, I was almost bitten by the same problem today (I'm starting the
Slovenian translation, finally). Turns out that the two make targets
that have to do with translation (locale-gnu-pot and
locale-gnu-po-update) only depend on xgettext and msgmerge. Surely we
could do that without jumping through hoops with configure? Perhaps put
those targets into a separate makefile on subversion/po. There's really
no need for them to depend on the rest of the build system. We can just
assume translators have the gettext tools in the path, and we don't even
have to bother with an objdir != srcdir build.
