But, you asked for with AM_GNU_GETTEXT.

AFAIR, the files are all limited to the po/ directory, and they're all
used either by AM_GNU_GETTEXT or po/

The only issue with upgrading from previous versions of
po/ is that you have to create po/Makevars, which you
can do once and for all with

  sed 's,^MSGID_BUGS_ADDRESS =,& address@hidden,' < po/Makevars.template > 

You can check in po/Makevars into the CVS repository.
