po/Makefile.in.in was removed and is now provided by copying the generic Makefile.in.in from gnulib. This generic version does not process the files listed in po/POTFILES-shell.in, with the result that the strings found in util/grub.d/*.in are no longer added to po/grub.pot.

The simplest fix is to restore the original po/Makefile.in.in.

I have a problem with its file :
Some of its lines are commented out wrongly and it iso on the Arch repositories (https://forums.archlinux.fr/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21584). It created a regression on the french translation of Grub.
It is these lines we find by using the script
linguas.sh from https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/grub.git.
I imagine Arch pakager make the package from it.
Could you decomment the appropriates lines and commit again the file ?
Thanks for your help.
