Hello again,

Seems like this feature isn't implemented yet in Tx -- updating the
LINGUAS file automatically -- as seen in this ticket[0]. Currently
this task has been handled in Xfce by doing some mod within the
build-env. With the newest xfce-dev-tools 4.7 the LINGUAS is parsed by
scanning po filenames inside the po directory, diff[1] is available,
but simply put: 1- delete po/LINGUAS 2- edit autogen.sh 3-1-- check
for version 4.7 of the xfce-dev-tools (the autoconf configure script
must be suffixed by .ac.in or .in.in) or 3-2-- do it yourself with a

So now everytime you run autogen.sh the make update-po command updates
all the catched po files without the need of the extra LINGUAS file.
