Thank you, Bruno, that is indeed a good solution. Saved my translators
30 strings.

With that configuration in place I only had to remove the gnulib dirs
from the sc_po_check check in maint.mk.

I guess I could write a patch to detect use of po-base, and auto-adjust
the check accordingly. However, as my gnulib assignment form hasn't even
arrived here yet, I'm reluctant to write more patches that cannot be
legally included yet. So if someone who's already done the paperwork
wants to have a look, I'd be glad.
