With the recent fix in the makefile the pspp.pot file is rebuild now also when 
building from the
distribution package - you see the last bug report when building without gui. 
Before that the
pspp.pot file was never rebuild when building from a distribution. We have

xgettext Without patches crashes with the —-its option
xgettext 0.20:     Works without the appstream package - no metainfo.its file 
required - builtin
appstream:         Available on opensuse,ubuntu and debian - makes it work with 
distribution version
So either a distribution has gettext 0.20 or 0.19 (some patches?) with the 
metainfo file. Otherwise the
org.fsf.pspp.metainfo.xml file will not be translated.

I pushed a change that this is not a build requirement but just a warning 
during configure.
