Well, you started the thread; I just hijacked it.  :)
For the reason, see below.

No, for the Lilypond maintainers.  They could improve the source.
For example:

# FIXME: this and next two should be one
msgid "Use the `alignment-offsets' sub-property of\n"
msgid "NonMusicalPaperColumn #'line-break-system-details\n"
msgid "to set fixed distances between staves.\n"

This means, the above three msgids should be a single msgid, one string.

So, in the source it should not say:

        stderr_write (_ ("Use the `alignment-offsets' sub-property of\n"))
        stderr_write (_ ("NonMusicalPaperColumn #'line-break-system-details\n"))
        stderr_write (_ ("to set fixed distances between staves.\n"))


        stderr_write (_ ("Use the `alignment-offsets' sub-property of\n"
                         "NonMusicalPaperColumn #'line-break-system-details\n"
                         "to set fixed distances between staves.\n"))

And maybe dropping the first \n too.
