GNU gettext does support multiple PO directories under a single

That's not the recommended way to install the files. You have the
'gettextize' and 'autopoint' programs. Choose among them depending
on whether you are upgrading to a new gettext version (then use
gettextize) or retrieving redundant files (then use autopoint).

For several years already, this syntax in configure.ac is not documented
any more. Use po/LINGUAS files instead (one such file per PO directory).


AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT is not part of GNU gettext. Complain to whomever
maintains (or does not maintain) that macro. Or use AM_GNU_GETTEXT.
