 13.6.3 Invoking the `autopoint' Program
      autopoint [OPTION]...
    The `autopoint' program copies standard gettext infrastructure files
 into a source package.  It extracts from a macro call of the form
 `AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION(VERSION)', found in the package's
 `' or `' file, the gettext version used by the
 package, and copies the infrastructure files belonging to this version
 into the package. Options
      Force overwriting of files that already exist.
      Print modifications but don't perform them.  All file copying
      actions that `autopoint' would normally execute are inhibited and
      instead only listed on standard output. Informative output
      Display this help and exit.
      Output version information and exit.
    `autopoint' supports the GNU `gettext' versions from 0.10.35 to the
 current one, 0.16.1.  In order to apply `autopoint' to a package using
 a `gettext' version newer than 0.16.1, you need to install this same
 version of GNU `gettext' at least.
    In packages using GNU `automake', an invocation of `autopoint'
 should be followed by invocations of `aclocal' and then `autoconf' and
 `autoheader'.  The reason is that `autopoint' installs some autoconf
 macro files, which are used by `aclocal' to create `aclocal.m4', and
 the latter is used by `autoconf' to create the package's `configure'
 script and by `autoheader' to create the package's `'
 include file template.
    The name `autopoint' is an abbreviation of `auto-po-intl-m4'; the
 tool copies or updates mostly files in the `po', `intl', `m4'
