xgettext -L Scheme

        [I am new to gettext and xgettext usage]

following packages installed:

address@hidden:~ 5 $ dpkg -l | grep gettext
ii  gettext        0.14.3-1       GNU Internationalization utilities
ii  gettext-base   0.14.3-1       GNU Internationalization utilities for the b
ii  gettext-doc    0.14.3-1       Documentation for GNU gettext
ii  gettext-el     0.14.3-1       Emacs po-mode for editing .po files

I copied the hello.scm file from Bruno Haible [i18n, gettext support]
guile-devel archived message, but when I run xgettext, it seems it does
recognise scheme?

        xgettext -L Scheme -o hello.pot hello.scm
        ; does not produce any output, no hello.pot file

        xgettext -a -L Scheme -o hello.pot hello.scm 
hello.scm:11: warning: Empty msgid.  It is reserved by GNU gettext:
                       gettext("") returns the header entry with
                       meta information, not the empty string.

        ; seems to produce too many entries, apparently any string
        ; in the input file

am I missunderstanding something here?
