Thanks! I'll try to take a closer look at the patch later today.

In fact, the primary thing if the interface in Boost.Build. The gettext
interface looks like:

gettext.update update-tr : russian.po src ;
gettext.catalog russian : russian.po ;

The second line creates "compiled" translations file from user-editable
translation file. I guess that's what mc does as well. The first line
extracts all untranslated strings found in "src" project and appends them to
"russian.po", for further translation. The question is whether there's
similiar step on windows. If not, then we need not bother much and can invent

mc.catalog rule
