perhaps 'make' related.

I'm trying to search the Web for information but everyone has said so
far "use GNU make instead". :-(

It's just a guess but I am wondering if in this line,


The issue is likely due to using a buggy gettext 0.19 (problem fixed in 
0.19.1), see here:

The fix is to require at least version 0.19.1 and rerun 'gettextize -f':

For verification, I'd recommend also checking this after 'gettexttize':
  $ grep ^PO_DEP po/Makevars*
  po/Makevars:PO_DEPENDS_ON_POT = yes
  po/Makevars.template:PO_DEPENDS_ON_POT = yes
