It applies fine, but remaking the gmo files causes some problems:

make[4]: Entering directory `/home/dmcgee/projects/pacman/lib/libalpm/po'
rm -f de.gmo && /usr/bin/msgfmt -c --statistics -o de.gmo de.po
de.po:54: `msgid' and `msgstr' entries do not both end with '\n'

You may want to join us in #archlinux-pacman sometime if you use IRC
and want help fixing or figuring out your git repo. If you don't go on
IRC, feel free to shoot me an email with the details and I'll try to
give you a few commands to try out.
