The only .pot files going to the TP for some time will be from 4.0 branch,
so 4.0 needs patching as well; 4.1 .pot files won't start going to the TP
until either 4.1 has branched or at least it is near branching.
doc/install.texi needs updating with the new minimum gettext version. If
there are problems running msgfmt with old msgfmt but new .po and .pot
files then configure changes will be needed to allow for that (to avoid
breaking builds from CVS for those with old msgfmt); otherwise configure
changes may not be needed.
The new conventions should also be noted in ABOUT-GCC-NLS.
