If msgfmt is not installed, it is assumed that it will never be called] by make .  If that is not the case, like when you build from git , it should be replaced by a meaningful failing assertion , not by : .  Otherwise you get the following confusing error from make [2]:

mv: cannot stat 't-ar.gmo': No such file or directory
