For po/, you already found that editing po/ is a
lost cause, because gettextize/autopoint regenerates it.  But have you
tried using po/Makevars instead?

For intl/, the common course of action these days is to avoid
the intl subdir altogether, and require that if the user wants gettext
support, that they have it installed independently of your package.  This
means changing your includes AM_GNU_GETTEXT([external]).

You may also have better luck asking bug-gettext for ideas, since gettext
is Bruno's domain of expertise.  But his suggestion may be to upgrade gettext.
