I was wondering how I could customise the options which are passed to msgfmt
using po-validate from within Emacs po-mode so I could check for accelerators
too. Well, what I actually found out is that the options are hardcoded into

Attached to this message is a small patch against po-mode.el which allows you to
customise the options passed to msgfmt putting something such as (from my

(setq po-msgfmt-opts "--statistics -c --check-accelerators=_ -v -o /dev/null")

in your .emacs. I hope it can be useful for others in this list.

PS: I'm no lisp guru, enhancements to this patch are really welcome ;)
