This is not the solution.  The solution would be more along the lines of
figuring out what the conditional in is trying to detect and
either updating if it is indeed "old [and] unmodified" or making
the conditional more intelligent if the current behavior is not
what the conditional is trying to find.  

Upon further investigation it seems like the sed line that is at the end of
the (at least in ggv) ought to be generated by
macros/gnome-gettext.m4 (and it is in my program) but I can't figure
out/don't have the time right now to figure out why it isn't done in ggv's
case.  The gnome-gettext file is the same, and the lines in
generally match up.  Perhaps someone should look into this futher, therein
probably lies the (real) solution to the problem.
