The correct fix is to remove the offending language from ALL_LINGUAS in
configure.in. Since gimp, unlike most other projects, has multiple
translation domains, it happens quite frequently that a translators adds
only a single po file for a new language and adds the new language to
ALL_LINGUAS even though there are po files missing in po-libgimp,
po-plug-ins and po-script-fu. This happened 2003-08-22 but Yosh removed
the offending language from configure.in on the same day so I doubt that
this was causing the problem for you. I have sent mail to the translator
who broke the build explaining the situation and pointing him at
