rebuilding of po files with SuSE 8.2

I see the same problem as Herbert and it started to occurr after my 
upgrade SuSE 8.0 to SuSE 8.1. I don't quite recall the 
autoconf/gettext/intltoolize version numbers from before. Anyway this is 
quite annoying -- I now run 'make' only in the src/ directory to avoid 
that. Even if it rebuilds 'only if strings change' it really doesn't 
help since these *.po files should come *from CVS* and not being rebuilt 
locally. I wonder whether we can adapt po/Makevars in some way such that 
this doesn't happen...
