Actually, msgfmt can do that itself with -c. This can be set in
Makefile.global:

$ grep MSGFMT src/Makefile.global
MSGFMT  = msgfmt -c

Unfortunately that doesn't help in this case, as the bad string isn't
tagged as "#, c-format", but still gets used as such. This seems to be
the case for many errhint() strings. Maybe xgettext should be taught
to treat all errhint() et al arguments as c-strings.
