IMO we should get rid of all variables that are defined to internal
programs and leave only SED, PO4A* and MSG*.  The purpose of defining
variable for programs is to change their value (for example with
similar programs as is the case with "makeinfo --html" and "texi2html"
or the same installed in different locations).

In our case it is pretty much redundant.

There are two cases when it can become invalid after mechanical

1) A bug in po4a which leads to invalid .pot.  We are in deep trouble
here, and msgmerge will fail so we will see what happened.

2) A bug in msgmerge that makes the .po invalid after merging from a
valid .pot.  I'm pretty sure the gettext maintainer will never release
such a buggy version :-)
