Ugh, me too.

I generated the .pot file properly, but I still get the same error when

make[3]: Entering directory `/home/jvinet/pacman-lib/lib/libalpm/po'
make .pot-update
make[4]: Entering directory `/home/jvinet/pacman-lib/lib/libalpm/po'
make[4]: *** No rule to make target `../../../add.c', needed by
`.pot-update'.  Stop.

Looking at the po/POTFILES file generated by ./configure, it seems to be
putting the wrong pathnames in:

     ../../../add.c \
     ../../../alpm.c \
     ../../../backup.c \
     ../../../be_files.c \


Do you guys have this problem with the FW pacman?  I am no autotools
