I'm sorry, I misunderstood what your patch does.  I have reread it
carefully and I have only one problem with it: the dependency from
catgets/ $(objpfx)de.msg to $(common-objpfx)intl/tst-gettext-de.po
creates an unenforced requirement for "make check" to process the intl
subdirectory before the catgets subdirectory.  We already have too
many of these unenforced subdirectory ordering requirements, and it
doesn't look like catgets->intl is an existing one.  Would you please
instead add the logic to strip POT-Creation-Date to xopen-msg.awk,
which appears only to be used to create the test de.msg file?

OK with that change.
