Wow, this is pretty new to my. I googled a bit and found out that this
seems to be related to itstool:



Which version of itstool are you using? 

On Travis, the automated continuous integration system connected to
GitHub, they are using version 2.0.2 of it and there it is working. See
for example the last build log from March 14th here:
(See lines 2635 and 3614)

It could be worth to check for the itstool version you are using and
maybe update/downgrade it.

Yes, exactly! :) First "make", and then "sudo make install".
