True. But conclusion for some is "msgfmt: found 2 fatal errors". See
$ LC_ALL=C msgfmt -c urpmi_mga2/urpmi.pot
msgfmt: urpmi_mga2/urpmi.pot: warning: PO file header fuzzy
                              warning: older versions of msgfmt will give
an error on this
urpmi_mga2/urpmi.pot:7: invalid nplurals value
urpmi_mga2/urpmi.pot:7: some header fields still have the initial default
msgfmt: found 2 fatal errors

Same message for:
libDrakX.pot mga2
drakconf.pot mga2
DrakX.pot mga2

I don't test files from branch mga1 in that script! And much of pot files
are not branched to mga2 yet.
