The `po/' directory also has a file named `Makevars'. It can be left unmodified if your package has a single message domain and, accordingly, a single `po/' directory. Only packages which have multiple `po/' directories at different locations need to adjust the three variables defined in `Makevars'.
`po/Makevars' gets inserted into the `po/Makefile' when the latter is created. At the same time, all files called `Rules-*' in the `po/' directory get appended to the `po/Makefile'. They present an opportunity to add rules for special PO files to the Makefile, without needing to mess with `po/Makefile.in.in'.
GNU gettext comes with a `Rules-quot' file, containing rules for
building catalogs `email@example.com' and `firstname.lastname@example.org'. The
effect of `email@example.com' is that people who set their
environment variable to `en@quot' will get messages with proper
looking symmetric Unicode quotation marks instead of abusing the ASCII
grave accent and the ASCII apostrophe for indicating quotations. To
enable this catalog, simply add
en@quot to the `po/LINGUAS'
file. The effect of `firstname.lastname@example.org' is that people who set
LANGUAGE to `en@boldquot' will get not only proper quotation
marks, but also the quoted text will be shown in a bold font on terminals
and consoles. This catalog is useful only for command-line programs, not
GUI programs. To enable it, similarly add
en@boldquot to the
