[bug-gettext] a .gmo file is not regenerated when its .po file changed

In a source tree of nano, after I've edited a PO file, running a simple
'make' in the main directory will regenerate the corresponding GMO file.
But in the source trees of for example grep or texinfo this is not the
case; a 'make' will not update the GMO file, and even a 'make install'
will just install the existing .gmo file (which no longer matches with
the .po file).  I think this is wrong.

Nano still contains a Makefile.in.in that belongs to gettext-0.11.5,
whereas grep and texinfo use the one from gettext-0.19.

Is there any way that modern gettext can in its Makefile.in.in make
each GMO file depend on its corresponding PO file?

(With source tree I mean an unpacked tarball.)
