Indeed, 'bootstrap' has its own copy of files that are meant to
be consistent with the 'gettext' module, but these files cannot be
part of the 'gettext' module (because a package may have multiple
'po' directories).

        bootstrap: Keep in sync with the 'gettext' module.
        Reported by Assaf Gordon in
        * build-aux/po/Makefile.in.in: Update to gettext 0.20.
        * build-aux/po/remove-potcdate.sin: Likewise.
