Consider the following for example:

    pg_log(PG_DEBUG, "fetched file \"%s\", length %d\n", filename, len);

If you pass fmt to gettext(), then it will look up the string that you
see in the code.  If you pass the formatted message to gettext(), then
it will look up something like

    "fetched file \"foo\", length 12\n"

which it will not find, unless you provide translations for all
combinations of file names and lengths.
