Does your po/Makefile not contain a fragment that compares the
newly built POT file with the existing POT file (disregarding
the POT Creation Date), and replaces the existing POT file only
when the new one differs from it (in something else than the
Creation Date)?

For building nano we have used gettext-0.18.3 for years, and
this po/Makefile fragment has been there at least since then.
That Makefile comes straight from gettext.
