 8.3.1 Completing GNU `gettext' Installation
 Once you have received, unpacked, configured and compiled the GNU
 `gettext' distribution, the `make install' command puts in place the
 programs `xgettext', `msgfmt', `gettext', and `msgmerge', as well as
 their available message catalogs.  To top off a comfortable
 installation, you might also want to make the PO mode available to your
 Emacs users.
    During the installation of the PO mode, you might want to modify your
 file `.emacs', once and for all, so it contains a few lines looking
      (setq auto-mode-alist
            (cons '("\\.po\\'\\|\\.po\\." . po-mode) auto-mode-alist))
      (autoload 'po-mode "po-mode" "Major mode for translators to edit PO files" t)
    Later, whenever you edit some `.po' file, or any file having the
 string `.po.' within its name, Emacs loads `po-mode.elc' (or
 `po-mode.el') as needed, and automatically activates PO mode commands
 for the associated buffer.  The string _PO_ appears in the mode line
 for any buffer for which PO mode is active.  Many PO files may be
 active at once in a single Emacs session.
    If you are using Emacs version 20 or newer, and have already
 installed the appropriate international fonts on your system, you may
 also tell Emacs how to determine automatically the coding system of
 every PO file.  This will often (but not always) cause the necessary
 fonts to be loaded and used for displaying the translations on your
 Emacs screen.  For this to happen, add the lines:
      (modify-coding-system-alist 'file "\\.po\\'\\|\\.po\\."
      (autoload 'po-find-file-coding-system "po-mode")
 to your `.emacs' file.  If, with this, you still see boxes instead of
 international characters, try a different font set (via Shift Mouse
 button 1).
