I had noticed that (a little), but did not pay enough attention.  Yes, I
suppose it is possible to modify the script to generate lynx.pot with the
actual package version and update the ".po" files to correspond.

When I noticed this, it was more focused on the updated ".po" files,
seeing that the headers were the boilerplate and (only obvious in
hindsight) did not notice that the boilerplate comes from lynx.pot itself.
