This situation is supported by the GNU gettext + autotools toolchain.

No, gettextize always only supported one podir. But gettextize is only
the tool for migrating from one gettext version to the next. A package
maintainer can get away without it, with a bit of handwork, following
the GNU gettext documentation.

Autopoint supports and always supported multiple podirs under the
same configure.ac. If you have subpackages with separate configure.acs,
I believe that you need to invoke autopoint in each of them.
(It's not recursively processing subpackages. Like
"autoreconf --no-recursive".)

You can use "AUTOPOINT=: autoreconf" to avoid running autopoint as part
of autoreconf, and run autopoint afterwards separately.
