That may be the case, but in fact I used GNU gettext
0.11.x and got that errors. I think the .po file is just
wrong (or better: made for the old gettext version) since
it is still from pkgsrc-2003Q4. In fact, at the mentioned
places there are \\s (and changing them to \s made the
errors go away).

If I get trouble with pkgsrc-2004Q1 too I'll post again,
but since 2003Q4 is soon 'deprecated' I don't want to
investigate further.

Thanks, Rob.
