Since I'm often offline, and often rebuild from clean CVS/Git, fetching
them during would not work for me.

I don't store in CVS.  I tried adding

MSGMERGE = msgmerge --no-location
MSGMERGE_UPDATE = msgmerge --no-location --update

to Makevars instead, though, and it seems to work: shishi.pot contains
line numbers, and the translated files doesn't contain them.

I'll experiment with this for a while and see how it goes.  If it works
out well, I'll use the same approach in all of my projects.
