> Don't patch Makefile.in.in, this does not work

In which scenario does it not work ?

I know it's not optimal but it works for me.

The alternatives are:
* The easy one: run gettext on the .h generated from the .ui but that
imply having make dist depending on the qt4-dev-tools

* Getting rid of the Makefile.in.in of gettext and writing our own (with
the possible added benefit of tweaking when po generated and so don't
force some git stash for people not bothered with l10n)

* Move the sed rules to modules/gui/qt4/Modules.am an create some
temporary files on which to run gettext. I think it loooks like the
better plan. ideally requires a sed/perl/awk script better than the
current one to do xml unescaping
