Ok, attached are both 4.0 and (updated) 4.1 patches.

As GCC does not run msgfmt with --check-format or similar options,
older msgfmt seems to work just fine (tested with 0.14.3 as well as
0.14.5).  So I think we can just require 0.14.5 for i18n maintainers
(for make gcc.pot and make update-po) and translators, other
developers/users should be able to make build-po just fine even with older

Ok for HEAD and 4.0 (I guess after 4.0.1 is released)?
