The second parameter to XDT_I18N() is optional. If you do not specify 
the package name, XDT_I18N() will use the package name given to 
autoconf. This is the first parameter to AC_INIT(). But in 
xffm/, you specify "src/main.c" as the package name to 
AC_INIT(), and so XDT_I18N() will use that name as well, which will 
result in breakage, as a file po/src/main.c.pot doesn't exists. You 
should fix the AC_INIT() call, and specify the first 3 parameters 
properly (the 4th parameter isn't required for xffm), e.g.:

AC_INIT([xffm], [4.3.0], [xfce4-dev at])

The last parameter is the bug report address, that will occur in 
./configure --help output.
