I'm not being understood.  All you, as a developer, should need to do
is `xgettext -f z-ls -o lynx.pot` where "z-ls" is a list of all source
files.  If you get a valid (= no error messages from xgettext) "lynx.pot",
then your job is finished.  xgettest tells the developer why and exactly
where it is unhappy if there is some problem it sees in the code.  If
you are more of a perfectionist, then also run `msgfmt -v -o
lynx.pot` to be sure it will compile. 

There is no need to include the lynx.pot file, because anyone serious
about having NLS support will need the package.  We're not talking about
just Lynx.

I can't imagine why you want to volunteer to "fix" the gettext package
and/or provide support for building it (the purpose of /intl) and
installing it (/po).
